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 Cam and Maryann 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. See photos of the Overlook and celebration here…

In case you missed our standing-room-only program in March…

Look back on a century of skiing on Moose Mountain and the historic Moose Mountain Lodge:

Get outdoors and explore!

Enjoy the miles of trails within the Shumway Forest, accessible via the Huggins Trail Access, or make your way through the Mill Pond Forest to Daniel Woodard’s historic mill site along Mink Brook, just downstream from the parking area. Thanks to forward-thinking landowners, these beautiful places will always be open to the public and will continue to provide a safe haven for wildlife.
