Harveys’ Kennard Hill Forest is conserved forever!

Harveys’ Kennard Hill Forest is conserved forever!

We are thrilled to share that SELT and our partners (NH Fish and Game, the towns of Epping and Nottingham, U.S. Fish and Wildlife ServiceLCHIP, Land and Community Heritage Investment Program, and the State Conservation Committee Conservation Grant Program) closed on the conservation easement with the Harvey family to save over 1,100 vital acres. And – thanks to the more than 270 people and businesses who contributed, we successfully raised the necessary funds to conserve and steward this land for future generations!

Conserving this land will:

  • Protect water quality by conserving wetlands and two miles of streams;
  • Guarantee public access for hiking with a trail system created by SELT;
  • Maintain the rural character of Epping and Nottingham; and
  • Conserve critical wildlife habitat for moose, bobcat, and more!

Thank you to all who donated and supported this project!
