Monadnock Conservancy gets towns' financial help
The Keene City Council on Thursday unanimously agreed to contribute $26,500 to the project.
The corridor sits within the largest area — 28,223 acres — of unfragmented land known as the California Brook Natural Area, which plays a key role in wildlife movement, according to Anne McBride, Monadnock Conservancy land protection director.
In September, Monadnock Conservancy approached all three municipalities for help to fund the $371,300 project by contributing $66,000.
The amount of money Monadnock Conservancy requested from each municipality is proportional to the acreage in each municipality, according to McBride.
The idea of creating the corridor of open land came out of a 1998 workshop. Since then, easements have created the corridor piece by piece, but this new swath of protected land would fill in a gap between Pisgah and Keene.
