Conservation groups work to protect Mt. Major
To preserve the area — which includes a 3.4-mile loop with views of Lake Winnipesaukee — the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and the Lakes Region Conservation Trust are working to purchase four key properties of about 950 acres being sold by separate landowners, said the Forest Society's Brenda Charpentier.
The groups, working with the Belknap Range Conservation Coalition, are hoping to preserve the rest of the Belknap Range's views, recreational opportunities and wildlife habitats. Mount Major is on the eastern end of the Belknap Range. The state owns the Route 11 parking area and the summit, which are part of the 60-acre Mount Major State Forest.
"We anticipate being able to announce soon commitments of up to $385,000, leaving $1.12 million still to be raised by Dec. 1," Jane Difley, president of the Forest Society, said in a news release.
