Needing to escape the holiday prep and get some fresh air? Don’t forget our Hanover Hikes of the Month – offering you a safe self-guided breather outdoors. For December, try Behemoths of Balch Hill (an easy, half-hour loop – a perfect trip for visiting family) or Fullington Farm and Old Highway 38 (do part or all).
Yesterday’s Annual Meeting was recorded! View the full video on our YouTube channel. The first 15 minutes are the business portion, followed by Executive Director, Adair Mulligan presentation of the History of HC protected lands and Q&A. Enjoy!
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.

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
