The Isinglass River flows through one of the fastest-growing regions of New Hampshire. It is a prized recreation spot for local anglers and boating enthusiasts, as well as a critical source of drinking water for many towns.

In 2008, we worked with the town of Strafford and Bear-Paw Regional Greenways to protect 287 acres along the river. In 2013 we had the opportunity to protect additional land along the river. Working with the Natural Resource Conservation Service we conserved 250 acres of forest that include two miles of Isinglass shoreline. The land will be managed by the town of Barrington as a community forest.

Since 1972, The Trust for Public Land has protected more than 3 million acres and completed more than 5,200 park and conservation projects.
