A wonderful article from the West Lebanon Valley News about our late co-founder Bob Norman.
Mink Brook Log Crossing status as of August 1st, 2022
You may recall that we were planning for its replacement well before advancing rot forced us to close it last summer, starting with research into what kind of structure would conform to the restrictions in our deed. The above-mentioned erosion meant we needed longer, stronger logs than the trees growing there could provide, so we can’t just replace the log. Our terrific team of Thayer engineering students developed a well-considered plan for a new crossing in the same place, and we’ve been working since March to secure approvals from key stakeholders.
To that end, our volunteers are wandering around the Preserve interviewing visitors (again) to learn more about how and where they enjoy the land, so we can share that information with those decision-makers. We hope to have good news soon!
The Hanover Conservancy is pleased and proud to share with you our new video honoring our 60th anniversary milestone. During 2021, we worked with videographer and Hanover High School student Ezra McGinley-Smith to capture Hanover’s most meaningful conservation places, partners, and progress.

This past Saturday we held our 60th anniversary celebration at the Dartmouth Rivercrest field across from our office at 71 Lyme Rd in Hanover. 76 people came out to help celebrate 60 years of community conservation with Hanover Conservancy and we had a chance to hear stories from fellow community members. It was very heartwarming to be able to capture a photo with past and present board members from 1961 till now. We also had the opportunity to recognized our key partners.
