Many New Hampshire residents deferred their Christmas shopping today to make a gift to Conserve the Balsams Landscape. We had a steady stream of visitors hand delivering checks in addition to those gifts made by phone, over the web and through the mail. This busiest day yet for the campaign was sparked by the news reports that Northern Pass is objecting to this conservation project. Donors expressed their disappointment, anger and disgust that Northern Pass would interfere with the conservation of this cherished landscape. We are working day and night to deliver to the people of New Hampshire one of the finest holiday gifts we can imagine: 5,800 acres of the North Country landscape for all to enjoy in perpetuity.
