Everybody Helped Mt. Major!  Campaign Goal Reached!

Mt. Major as seen from the new Quarry Mountain Forest. 

The "Everybody Hikes Mt. Major" fundraising campaign has reached the summit, achieving our goal of $1.8 million for acquiring 980 acres on and near Mt. Major! 

  

We are very grateful that the campaign received more than 1,900 gifts ranging from $2 to $340,000.  Gifts came in from 31 states, from as far away as Hawaii, Arizona and Oregon. 

 

The successful partnership between the Forest Society, Lakes Region Conservation Trust and Belknap Range Conservation Coalition has resulted in the purchase of three parcels of forests, trails and wetlands on Mt. Major, East and West Quarry and Piper mountains, as well as in the Moulton Valley.  A fourth parcel is in the final stages of acquisition. 

  

Because of the recreational component to these Belknap Range properties, conserving them is just the first step.  The trails on Mt. Major are degraded by overuse and require repair and maintenance. We have set up a fund to meet these stewardship responsibilities. If you would like to help, please give online or call Susanne Kibler-Hacker at 224-9945, ext. 314.  Thank you!

Please Join Us On A Guided Hike!
