Over the last few months, I've spent a lot of time writing grant applications for land conservation projects in a number of communities in NH. Piecing together enough funds to purchase a parcel or easement isn't a simple process. It takes a significant amount of time to seek out private and public funds that fit the unique characteristics and goals of the project. Land trusts and property owners are often the drivers behind these projects, but conservation wouldn't be possible without the monetary contributions and volunteer hours of conservation commissions, local associations, neighbors, and others. Thank you all for your efforts!
