Abstract

The Trust for Public Land (TPL) is partnering with New Hampshire Fish and Game, the Town of Barrington, and Strafford Rivers Conservancy to complete the Stonehouse Pond Conservation Project - a collaborative effort to protect 241 forested acres surrounding Stonehouse Pond in New Hampshire's fast growing coastal region. The property, located within a 4,200-acre block of unfragmented forest, has been recognized as a conservation priority in the NH Wildlife Action Plan and the Land Conservation Plan for the NH's Coastal Watersheds, and is part of TPL's broader Coastal Conservation Initiative. TPL has secured an option to purchase the properties in two Phases and, upon successfully acquiring the property will convey Phase I to New Hampshire Fish and Game and Phase II to Strafford Rivers Conservancy Service. Public access for low impact recreation will be encouraged.
