Founded in 1970, the Piscataquog Land Conservancy (PLC) is a private non-profit land conservation organization working to conserve the natural resources and scenic beauty of the Piscataquog, Souhegan, and Nashua River valleys of southern New Hampshire. PLC has to date permanently protected 129 properties totaling 9,165 acres, and typically conserves 3-5 new properties each year. All PLC-owned properties are open to the public to explore and enjoy. Once land is protected, it is regularly monitored by our team of more than fifty volunteer property monitors. PLC also offers a wide range of educational and recreational outings – including the Rose Mountain Rumble!
PLC serves the communities of Amherst, Bedford, Brookline, Deering, Dunbarton, Francestown, Goffstown, Greenfield, Greenville, Henniker, Hollis, Lyndeborough, Manchester, Mason, Merrimack, Milford, Mont Vernon, Nashua, New Boston, New Ipswich, Temple, Weare, and Wilton. PLC is based in New Boston, New Hampshire.

Of the 9,165 acres of land conserved (so far) by PLC, we own and manage 27 preserves totaling just over 2,081 acres. All PLC-owned lands are open to the public for non-motorized, low-impact recreation. Some properties may have special-use restrictions to protect important natural resources, so please adhere to any posted guidelines. PLC also holds conservation easements on 102 properties totaling just over 7,084 acres. The easements ensure the permanent conservation of the land, but the properties are owned by private individuals or municipalities.
