 Saving the outdoors in southeastern New Hampshire
This year two full-time Seasonal Land Stewards will assist with the monitoring of SELT's 180+ conservation easements and the management of our 29 owned properties. The Stewards will learn the role that conservation easements play in natural resources protection, best practices for easement monitoring and land management, and more. Applications for these temp positions are due January 31.
When vulnerable farmland changes hands, SELT can help ensure a conservation outcome. Learn about three farms currently in transition that are working with SELT to protect a future of fresh, local foods and fertile growing soils for our region.

Tickets will be on sale starting in February through The Music Hall . This is a sell-out show, so be sure to get your tickets early!
