Grantee:  Appalachian Mountain Club & Forest Watch

Result: 76,000 acres protected

In November 2006, Congress designated 76,000 acres of federal land in New England as Wilderness. Supporting the New England effort, The Conservation Alliance made grants to the Appalachian Mountain Club (NH) and Forest Watch (VT). Our grant to AMC helped the group identify lands in New Hampshire worthy of Wilderness designation, and secure recommendations from the Forest Service that those lands be protected. ForestWatch used our support to build support in Vermont for the Green Mountain protections.
