Great Meadow Preserve Expansion

MMRG is thrilled to partner with the Town of Tuftonboro, through the Tuftonboro Conservation Commission, in expanding the exemplary Great Meadow Preserve!

This is a 22 acre expansion along Sodom Road, directly abutting the previously-conserved 379 acre Preserve. The new acreage connects to the existing conservation area by public trails and a parking area. This new expansion includes 3.5 acres of wetlands and 950 ft of frontage on the Melvin River. The Town of Tuftonboro owns the Great Meadow Preserve and MMRG will be the Conservation Easement holder. This partnership allows for a double-layer of protection that benefits the entire surrounding community and ensures that the land remains conserved in perpetuity. 

This conservation project was completed with the help of funding from The New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP) and the Department of Environmental Services Aquatic Resource Mitigation Program (ARM), both of which provide matching grants to projects that conserve important New Hampshire landscapes. MMRG was selected to receive $51,000 from these competitive grant programs for the Great Meadow Preserve Expansion. LCHIP and ARM funding provided critical support for the legal requirements, due diligence work, and stewardship of the Expansion. The project was also completed with financial support from public fundraising efforts thanks to many generous individuals.
