Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire is the official non-profit partner of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. The foundation raises money and works with wildlife professionals and conservation education partners to fund Fish and Game’s conservation of wildlife and natural places important to New Hampshire family traditions such as fishing, hiking, hunting, and watching wildlife.

In recent years, the foundation has supported a wide range of projects, including aerial stocking of trout into remote ponds, tracking and mapping of ovigerous female lobsters, determination of river herring passage over the breached Wadleigh Falls Dam on the Lamprey River, kiosks for the Connecticut Lakes Natural Area, Fish and Game’s Landowner Relations Program, Conservation Canine search and rescue dogs, publication of Wild Times for Kids, improvements at Owl Brook Hunter Education Center and Barry Conservation Camp.

Funding for the Wildlife Heritage Foundation’s grants program comes from individual and corporate donors and from the annual auctioning of fish and game permits and licenses. The foundation accepts general and targeted cash donations, as well as planned gifts and tangible assets; in most cases, contributions are tax-deductible.
