The Town of Wolfeboro and the Land Bank of Wolfeboro-Tuftonboro, Inc. have donated a conservation easement to the Lakes Region Conservation Trust on three key parcels of land on Whiteface Mountain in Wolfeboro
The easement donated by the Town, through its Conservation Commission, and the Land Bank will ensure the permanent protection of 118 acres of land, including a one mile trail and the summit of Whiteface. Future generations will be able to have the chance to enjoy this trail and the stunning view from the top. The opportunity to protect this important landscape has been made possible by the hard work and generosity of the two organizations. The property will be known as the Whiteface Mountain Conservation Area.
In 2019, the Student Conservation Association was contracted to establish a trail on the property. The trail is beautifully constructed, ensuring that hikers have an easy and scenic walk to the summit. The trail winds through a young, healthy birch forest and glacial erratics supporting vibrant lichen communities. These parcels provide a wonderful woodland setting for hiking and nature observation while contributing significantly to the protection of water quality and wildlife habitat.
