In 2008, NALMC was awarded a grant from the Otto Fund of the NH Charitable Foundation to conduct an ecological assessment of the 6,000 acres in the NALMC neighborhood. The report, provided by Ibis Wildlife Consulting, is a high-level view of the natural resource values in the area as well as suggested improvements. [learn more]
In September 2016, NALMC will release the Connecting People to Nature or CPN Report, which describes in detail the natural, ecological, and social resources within 2,600 acres of contiguous permanently conserved individual properties, held by 17 different landowners in Northwood, NH. The CPN Report was funded by grants from NH Charitable Foundation and Russell Farm & Forest Foundation. [learn more]
The Story of NALMC
The Northwood Area Land Management Collaborative (NALMC) is an innovative land stewardship organization — a voluntary partnership between public and private landowners in Northwood, New Hampshire, who have successfully looked beyond their individual property boundaries since 2006 to enhance the ecological, social, recreational, and economic resources of the local landscape for present and future generations.
It is a complex weave of people, institutions, and the land. To understand and appreciate this evolving collaboration, you must listen to the individual voices of the people who have been involved, telling their own stories. So, interspersed with our text are some of the voices, reflecting on the meaning of NALMC for them and for their community. We believe that these voices give deeper meaning to the text.
