Dixville Notch, NH
The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests has raised $850,000 through 1,500 private donations to protect working forest, wildlife habitat, and 30 miles of recreational trails around the historic BALSAMS Grand Resort Hotel. The newly conserved land includes the popular vista Table Rock and a section of the Cohos Trail, which carries hikers and snowmobilers from the White Mountains to the Canadian border. To rally support, they created a video about the area's importance.
