Getting Help 


UNH Cooperative Extension offers assistance to landowners interested in conserving their land. There are several options for land conservation in New Hampshire. Here are a few resources to start you off in the right direction:

  • Find Your Local Land Trust - Often your local land trust is the first place to call to learn more about your land conservation options.
  • NRCS Easement Programs - The USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service offers several easement programs, one of which may be the right fit for you.
  • Landowner Stories - Read stories about other landowners who have conserved and/or managed their land for wildlife and other natural resources.
