About the Hanover Conservancy

We are the oldest local land trust in New Hampshire. Our mission is to protect land and water in our community and to nurture an appreciation for Hanover’s natural environment among those who live and work here. A private, non-profit membership organization, the Conservancy is not affiliated with town government, but often works closely with our civic partners. The Conservancy leads active programs in land conservation, outdoor education, stewardship of our natural areas, and advocacy for conservation-oriented public policy. We invite you to explore this site to learn more about us and the outstanding natural and human communities we serve.
