Northern Forest Protection Awarded Grants 2001
New Hampshire - 12/13/2001 - Pond of Safety The Trust for Public Land (TPL) is receiving a grant of $400,000 for the purchase of land totaling 13,910 acres in northern New Hampshire. Approximately 10,198 acres will be owned and managed as a sustainable community forest by the Town of Randolph, protected through a conservation easement. The remaining 3,712 acres will be purchased in fee by the U.S. Forest Service as an addition to the White Mountain National Forest. The acquisition permanently protects a critical wildlife corridor between the Kilkenny and Presidential units of the White Mountain National Forest. The project contains very high recreation and scenic values and provides the critical linkage to create 950,000 acres of contiguous conserved lands.
