Lakes Region Conservation Trust

The Lakes Region Conservation Trust was founded in 1979 to protect key wildlife habitat in central New Hampshire, to provide for public access to conservation lands for thoughtful recreation purposes, and to preserve some of the largest freshwater and wilderness resources within one hundred miles of metropolitan Boston and a single days' drive of New York, Philadelphia, and Washington.

The Lakes Region Conservation Trust is a member-supported, community-based, non- profit organization. The Trust unites private philanthropy with voluntary community service to protect key conservation properties and to endow their stewardship in perpetuity. Since 1995, the Trust has protected more than 16,500 acres of conservation land, bringing its total protected properties to more than 18,500 acres, including more than 22 miles of protected shore frontage on the region's lakes, ponds, rivers and streams. During this period, the Trust has raised more than $25,000,000 in donated assets. In most cases, the Trust seeks to secure the conservation, study, and recreational use of its lands through direct ownership, the oldest and most established form of property holding.
