ACT leads and inspires private, voluntary action to conserve land the North Country loves.


Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust is the nationally accredited, locally based, grassroots nonprofit lands conservancy serving New Hampshire's North Country. 

 We protect land for all who live here, now and in the future. We especially focus on conserving the farms and working forests that are the foundation of our region’s economy and character.


  • The Land and its Uses. We respect the natural beauty, history, and traditional uses of our lands as regionally and nationally significant resources to be protected for future generations. We do not regard land protection as an end in itself; rather, conservation is a tool for building and ensuring community and individual well being, economic vitality, and a healthy environment. 
  • Our Operating Principles. First, we listen. We facilitate approaches to land conservation with integrity, honesty, practicality, and humor! 
  • Our Performance. We value integrity and excellence in our work and collaborate with others to achieve our mission. 
  • Our Extended Obligations. We believe local actions with regard to the land and its use have an impact beyond our region and time.We work to ensure public awareness of best practices of environmental stewardship and protection of our inheritance for future generations.
