Each year, the Forest Society adds thousands of acres to our treasury of conserved land. How do we do this? We work with landowners, donors, grant organizations, partner land trusts, conservation commissions and local and state governments to identify worthy properties, negotiate their purchase or protection through easements, raise money and manage each project until we can triumphantly register a new deed.

We also devote time and resources to forest advocacy, providing leadership and informing public debate on conservation issues statewide.
In any given month, we may be raising money to conserve and steward forests, fields and wetlands anywhere in the state. We may also be seeking support and donations for our advocacy efforts. By taking a look at our current projects, you'll get a sense of the diverse ways we work on our members' behalf. We welcome your support and hope you'll join us in achieving our mission of perpetuating New Hampshire's forests and effectively advocating their wise use.
