NEW Mink Brook Map and Guide

Our expanded and updated guide to our flagship preserve at Mink Brook is now available! Many thanks to the Hanover Lions Club and longtime Mink Brook neighbors Maryann and the late Cam Rankin for underwriting this publication. The wonderful cover photo featuring two of Mink’s cubs was taken by Nicki Felicetti.

Newly added to this guide is a description of the Robert Z. Norman Overlook, which was dedicated on Sunday, September 15th. Thanks to all who joined us at the Preserve as we honored Bob Norman, co-founder of the Conservancy in 1961 and a pivotal voice for conservation in the Upper Valley.
