Follow up on the Campton Conservation Commission

  • Dear Friends of Campton Conservation Commission,                                                                                                                      October, 2020
  • The spring, summer and early fall has been busy for us on the Campton Conservation Commission. The West Branch Brook Forest Project has been moving steadily forward .
  • Some of the important steps taken so far toward the goal to purchase over 200 acres to protect their critical natural habitat and make connection with the White Mountain National Forest are:
  • Acquiring Purchase and Sale agreements with both property owners
  • Holding a public hearing for purchase of parcel 9-1-1 on April 22
  • Creating a money-raising campaign to raise local donations (over 60 people donated over $26K)
  • Hiring for appraisals of both parcels, survey of one
  • Hiring a grant writer to assist with grant writing
  • Hiring for aquatic resource studies of the properties (as required for one grant)
  • Completing 4 grant applications asking for over $350K total
  • Begun conversations with Pemi Baker Land Trust on Conservation Easements
  • Worked on property clean-up of old items and transfer to town transfer station
  • Some of the next steps are :
  • Wait to hear back from grant funders . (We’re fairly sure we won’t get all asked for.)
  • Hold Public Hearing to discuss purchase of parcel 3-1-1on December 2nd
  • o     This parcel connects the 9-1-1 parcel to the White Mountain National Forest
  • Our grant applications were enhanced  by  demonstrating  the strong local financial support by those who contributed. We appreciate your  interest and support . Thank you!
  • Sincerely,
  • Campton Conservation Commission :

10-15-20 Club News

Starting Saturday October 24 we will start hosting work parties every Saturday until the work is done. Primary duties will be opening up the trails and removing what mother nature has left on the trail. We ask that you RSVP before showing up. (Ride@cnhsc.com)  We are tying to maintain safe working conditions so please give us at least days notice so we can plan.

We always meet at Dirt Designs at 73 Laundromat Rd Thornton NH for 8AM. You are welcome to bring ATV’s but they must be registered. It is recommended that you become a current 2020-21 club member so our insurance coverage helps protect you in case of a accident. Coverage is only covered to current members.

Thanks

CNHSC
