PLC Service Area
Founded in 1970
The Piscataquog Land Conservancy (PLC) is a private, non-profit land conservation organization dedicated to conserving the land, water and wildlife of twenty-three communities in the Merrimack valley of southern New Hampshire. Comprising just 8% of the state’s land area, the towns and cities we serve are home to 28% of New Hampshire’s people. As of July 1, 2017, PLC held interests in 106 properties totaling nearly 6,900 acres of land. We have a professional staff of four, and more than fifty local volunteer property monitors. PLC’s modest annual operating budget is funded almost entirely by the private contributions of individuals, families and businesses in our watershed communities. In 2017 PLC was awarded national land trust accreditation, a mark of distinction for private land trusts in the United States.
