The Harris Center connects people to the natural world through land protection, education of all ages, conservation research, and programs that encourage active participation in the great outdoors.
Our educational programs, camps, and community science initiatives invite people of all ages to deepen their understanding of the local landscape.
We've protected more than 25,000 acres of land in the Monadnock Region, for people and wildlife alike. Learn more about our land conservation efforts and how you can help.
We welcome conservation research on much of the land and water we’ve helped protect, and encourage participation in our popular community science initiatives.
Our headquarters in Hancock, NH are located in the heart of a 36,000-acre SuperSanctuary of conserved lands. Explore our trails, grounds, and facilities.
