ABOUT SELT

The Southeast Land Trust of NH is a member-supported nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect and sustain the significant lands in our communities for clean water, fresh food, outdoor recreation, healthy forests, and wildlife.

Since 1980, SELT has served 52 communities of southeastern New Hampshire to conserve more than 14,000 acres of land through conservation agreements and ownerships. 

Our Strategic Plan identifies four goals for the Southeast Land Trust, listed below:

Strategic Land Protection Proactively protect Conservation Focus Areas with an added emphasis on farmland and water resources
Connect People to Place Expand our visibility to broaden and strengthen the connection of people and communities to the Land Trust’s work
Broaden our Relationships Deepen our relationships with members, residents, and communities to expand our reach, increase our effectiveness, and ensure our long-term stability
Sustain our Success Continue our conservation work through model stewardship of our lands and easements

As with any plan, it is only effective if it is implemented, tracked, and evaluated. Therefore for each goal the plan identifies associated strategies and tactics, the responsible party within the organization, a timeline for the work, estimated costs, and measures of progress.
