Map of Conserved Lands

The Monadnock region. It’s nearly 800 square miles of forest, hills, rivers, lakes, and mountains. If you live, work, or play in Cheshire County or in the western part of Hillsborough County, you know it’s an area that includes stunning vistas, hidden gems, and picturesque landscapes — including Mount Monadnock, which rises to 3,165 feet, as well as vast networks of trails, woodlands, and family farms. 

Since 1989, the Monadnock Conservancy, together with willing landowners, has permanently conserved 21,000 acres in 28 towns throughout southwestern New Hampshire. These ecologically diverse lands cover important wildlife habitat, waterways, and working farms and forests, and provide opportunities for recreation, education, and experiences — across a wide geographic area.

Why I Care

I’ve remained passionate to this organization for as long as I have because of the mission, and because of the people — the staff is the best ever.
