Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests
April 22, 2010
I am a frequent visitor to several Society reservations, am a member, and support specific preservation projects when I can. My occasional encounters with Society staff over a 15-yr. period have left me impressed with their professionalism, dedication, and commitment to mission. As someone who works in the land trust field elsewhere, I have the utmost respect for the Society's consistent ability to facilitate and complete large-scale land projects that have resulted in the preservation of many of NH's most cherished landscapes. The Society also does great work in the advocacy and education areas, and seeks to advance the art and science of forestry--but without its demonstrated commitment to land conservation, these other pursuits wouldn't mean much.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the preservation of several landscapes that are near and dear to my family and I, including Mt. Sunapee and the Hay Forest Reservation. While I most appreciate the Society's work in my area, its successes are evident in every corner of NH.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
leverage even more funds for critical acquisitions efforts, complete projects that might otherwise be unattainable, and still have funds left to endow reservations and positions within the organization.
