About the Conservancy
The Hanover Conservancy is a private, non-profit organization focused on land conservation in Hanover NH. The Conservancy is dedicated to the conservation of land and water, and to deepening the appreciation of natural resources for the benefit of the Hanover community and beyond. We achieve our mission with programs in land conservation, active land stewardship, environmental education and support for conservation oriented public policies.
The Conservancy has helped to facilitate the conservation of some 1700 acres since 1961, when we were founded as the Hanover Conservation Council. We currently own and manage the Mink Brook Nature Preserve (east of Route 10), the summit of Balch Hill, Slade Brook Natural Area (off River Road) and the Greensboro Ridge Natural Area adjacent to the Appalachian Trail, north of Greensboro Road.
We work in partnership with landowners, town government, other conservation groups, and developers to find conservation opportunities and solutions in our town. The Conservancy can protect land through ownership, conservation easement or identifying other conservation resources.
