The Harris Center is actively working to protect 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.

These parcels have been identified as high-priority wildlife habitat by the NH Wildlife Action Plan, and contain considerable shoreline along Willard Pond Brook. In addition, they share a half-mile-long border with NH Audubon’s dePierrefeu-Willard Pond Wildlife Sanctuary and are directly connected to more than 8,000 acres of conserved land in Hancock, Antrim, and Stoddard – providing vital room to roam for people and wildlife alike.

To permanently protect the land, we must raise $200,000 by the end of April 2022. To make a tax-deductible contribution in support of this project, select “Willard Pond Brook Land Protection Project” as the program for your online donation.

UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who has donated to this important project. As of March 10, 2022, we are just $30,000 away from our goal!
