To facilitate cooperative action with and inspire leadership from people, organizations and communities for a sustainable economy rooted in the conservation, and development of natural resources. We focus on New Hampshire's southern six counties (Cheshire, Hillsborough, Merrimack, Rockingham, Strafford, and Sullivan) as well as on some statewide projects.
Southern NH Resource Conservation & Development Council Area, Inc. (RC&D) is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit corporation which works in partnership with other organizations and agencies to improve the lives of people by conserving our environment, improving community services, and assisting the development and application of innovative uses of natural resources. Southern NH RC&D is an action-oriented, project-implementing agent. It proactively assesses natural resource needs and opportunities, creates specific action alternatives, convenes resources of people, technical assistance, and capital to make things happen. RC&D operates with a minimum of staff and depends on teams of volunteers who are assembled to initiate a specific action. RC&D also responds to requests for assistance from communities, and other not-for-profit organizations. Examples of current projects: a farmer-to-farmer network for small and beginning farmers; helping communities learn about new methods of forest land planning, connecting agriculture and natural resources interests with tourism; and helping communities develop needed facilities for rural fire protection.
