The World Fellowship Center on Whitton Pond ProjectDonate to this Project
USVLT is partnering with the World Fellowship Center on a conservation easement that will protect over 400 acres on Whitton Pond in Albany, NH and nearly complete the pond’s protection.
From now until December 1st, we have an extraordinary opportunity: an anonymous foundation will MATCH all gifts – or pledges – of $1,000 or more! This means that you could give $250 now, $250 next year, and $250 for the following two years, and qualify for this generous match. Please make your gift or pledge today. Thank you!
Important conservation values of the property include:
3500 feet of the Whitton Pond shoreline
2200 feet of frontage on the Chocorua River
Extensive frontage on busy Route 16
76 acres of the Highest Ranked Habitat in New Hampshire, as identified by state’s Wildlife Action Plan
Rare plants & natural communities
Nesting sites for the Common Loon, pond residents for >100 years
Connectivity to 900 acres of conserved land around Whitton Pond and over 250,000 acres of the White Mountain National Forest.
World Fellowship Center (WFC) was founded in 1941 as a non-profit focused on promoting social justice and the connections between people, communities, and nature through education, recreation, and creative expression. With your help, USVLT will purchase a conservation easement on the property, and as an exemplary steward of the land, WFC will continue to own and manage the property much as it has for over half a century.
PROJECT TOTAL: $394,000
