Freedom—October 15, 2012—From time to time we like to call attention to the work of other state conservation organizations. Here are two groups currently managing significant initiatives.
Effingham’s Green Mountain Conservation Group is holding a meeting on Sunday, October 28, at Calumet Conference Center to detail its plan to raise funds for the purchase and protection of the Philips Brook wetlands. The 102-acre preserve is south of Route 25 and drains into Leavitt Bay via Phillips Brook.
The presentation, which includes wine and hors d’ouevres, will be made by the organization’s Land Trust Committee from 3-4:30 p.m. To attend, RSVP at 603-539-1859 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here for the organization’s website on the project.
The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests (a.k.a the Forest Society) is working on a $2.5 million land purchase to protect acreage in the path of Northern Pass, the controversial project to construct 1,100 towers on 180 miles of high-voltage transmission lines from Canada to southern New England through some of northern New Hampshire’s most scenic countryside.
The information page on the project, which can be accessed here, has background on the organization’s opposition to the project and details on its goals.
After you make your end-of-year contribution to the Alliance, please consider the work of these worthy organizations.
