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.

Current Project: WLC Community Nature Park

The Conservancy is working with the Winchester Learning Center to make outdoor time more fun and more accessible for kids and families. A new trail and boardwalk will engage people with nature and encourage unstructured play.
