Together, protecting forever the land we love

The Monadnock region. It’s nearly 800 square miles of forest, hills, rivers, lakes, and mountains. Since 1989, the Monadnock Conservancy, together with willing landowners, has permanently conserved 21,000 acres in 29 towns throughout southwestern New Hampshire. Learn more about our history.
