The inherent character of the Lakes Region of central New Hampshire has inspired generations of year-round residents and summer visitors alike. Our lakes, forests, and mountains are special places; we value the time we spend here, and we hope that future generations will be able to enjoy the same qualities of the landscape that bring inspiration and comfort to us. The Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) was founded in 1979 to conserve these special places.

Together with our dedicated community of supporters, we have conserved 169 properties totaling over 28,800 acres—lands that encompass many of the special places that define our unique and spectacular part of New England.
The Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT) is dedicated to the permanent conservation, stewardship, and respectful use of lands that define the character of the Lakes Region and its quality of life.
