COVID-19 UPDATE: The Harris Center has canceled or postponed all in-person programs and events through at least June 15. The Harris Center building will also be closed to visitors until June 15. Our trails and grounds remain open.
We’re excited to announce that the Harris Center has been given an opportunity to protect a 41-acre lot in East Harrisville! This mostly forested parcel is on the northwest corner of the intersection of Route 137 and Hancock Road, with 2,000 feet of frontage on Route 137. It abuts Harris Center-conserved land on its western and northern boundaries, and is dominated by red oak, sugar maple, red maple, and white pine. The protection of this property would add to a contiguous block of over 5,000 conserved acres in Harrisville, Hancock, and Nelson — ensuring room to roam for people and wildlife alike.
To permanently protect the land, we must raise $18,000 by the end of the year. To make a tax-deductible contribution in support of this project, select “East Harrisville Land Protection Project” as the program for your online donation. For more information or to donate offline, please contact Jeremy Wilson at (603) 525-3394 or by email.
