Bridgewater Hill Properties

Bridgewater, NH

Conservation of land on Bridgewater Hill has long been a high priority for the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, and we are honored to work with a group of extraordinarily generous landowners on LRCT’s first conservation projects in Bridgewater. Four neighboring owners have joined together to conserve approximately 170 acres, helping to protect water quality, important habitat, and climate resilient lands and preserve the scenic qualities and character of Bridgewater Hill.

Bear Mountain Conservation Area

Hebron, NH

LRCT has conserved 80 acres of a key densely-forested property with cliff and talus slope habitat on the shoulder of Bear Mountain in Hebron. Conservation of this parcel, with abutting land already subject to development restrictions, has resulted in the protection of over 200 contiguous acres on the slopes of Bear Mountain overlooking Newfound Lake. We are extraordinarily grateful to generous donors, including the John Gemmill Newfound Fund, and local volunteers whose dedication to conservation in the Newfound Watershed made it possible for LRCT to acquire this land.
