MMRG Engaged in Regional Conservation Action Planning

MMRG’s mission expanded three years ago to become a land trust and we have become keenly aware that preserving land forever requires resources that are limited and require smart decisions. In order to prioritize our conservation projects, MMRG is developing a strategic conservation action plan for the seven town service area: Brookfield, Farmington, Middleton, Milton, New Durham, Wolfeboro, and Wakefield.
