The Hanover Conservancy has announced the acquisition of a pristine 79-acre parcel of land thanks to the generosity of Doug and Katharine Britton of Norwich on October 31, 2018. The forested parcel cloaks the west slope of the iconic Moose Mountain ridge just below the North Peak, surrounded on three sides by permanently protected and/or public land, including the Conservancy’s own Mayor-Niles Forest, given to the Conservancy just five years ago this month.

Doug Britton observed, “It’s not often that landowners have the opportunity to add acreage to existing conserved land, especially in areas important to wildlife, water resources, forestry and recreation. We are pleased to make this gift to the Hanover Conservancy, strongly support their mission, and appreciate their assistance in making this transfer happen.”
