About Us

The New Hampshire Friends of the Suncook River is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) charitable conservation organization founded in 2001.   In January of 2001, over twenty folks from throughout the watershed met in Barnstead, NH to discuss the possibility of developing a network of greenways within the Suncook River Watershed

There was representation from Conservation Commissions, Planning Commissions, Selectmen offices, Schools, Fish & Game, UNH Cooperative Extension, as well as interested individuals and landowners, to name a few.
