The History of Conservation in Hanover…or, how to string a green necklace, bead by bead.
Tuesday, April 27, 7:00pm – via Zoom
Sponsored by the Hanover Conservancy and Hanover Historical Society
Speaker: Adair Mulligan, Executive Director, Hanover Conservancy
We’ll take an armchair tour of Hanover and its many now-protected spaces to celebrate Earth Week.
Beginning with a look back at the bad old days of water pollution, environmental degradation, and the
back to the land movement, we’ll go forward with the founding 60 years ago of the Hanover
Conservation Council (now Hanover Conservancy), and the blossoming of conservation efforts in this
beautiful town, from the Connecticut River to the peaks of Moose Mountain. Well-illustrated with maps
and images, we’ll reveal the backstory of how the “green necklace” came to be strung around
downtown Hanover, culminating in the protection this year of the 250-acre Mink Brook Community
