Protecting New Hampshire's landscapes has been the driving force behind the Forest Society since it began in 1901. We conserve lands which contribute to interconnected, biologically diverse ecosystems, that also combat climate change, protect water quality, provide forest products, sequester carbon and enhance outdoor recreational opportunities.

Here, find more information on our land conservation methods, how to protect your own property, and what resources are available for open space protection in your community.
