A Team Effort to Protect Wildlife Habitat in Hancock & Antrim
We’re delighted to announce that the Harris Center has raised the funds needed to acquire two contiguous parcels totaling 74 acres south of Willard Pond: one in Hancock off of Weston Road, and one in Antrim off of Willard Pond Road. We expect to close on both parcels over the summer.
These parcels have been identified as high-priority wildlife habitat by the NH Wildlife Action Plan, and contain considerable frontage along Willard Pond Brook. In addition, they share a half-mile-long border with NH Audubon’s dePierrefeu-Willard
It takes a community to make land protection possible, and this project is no exception. Thank you to the New England Forestry Foundation, the Quabbin-to-Cardigan Partnership, the Antrim Conservation Commission, and many individual friends of the SuperSanctuary for your generous support!
