Save The Gateway to Walpole

Your donation will go twice as far! Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, any donation made before Thanksgiving will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $5,000. Please make a gift today and it'll have double the impact.

At the "Gateway" of the Town of Walpole, this 10-acre parcel was recently under imminent threat from gas station development. We now have the opportunity to purchase this land for the Town and put these zoning battles behind us for good.

The Walker Road Conservation Project is "the Gateway" to our village. This land welcomes residents and visitors to Walpole. Providing direct access to the Connecticut River, this land has 10 acres of opportunities for nature trails, recreation, and relaxation. Protecting this land also preserves Walpole's natural resources with acreage for farming and a high yielding aquifer for the town's future water supply.

The purchase and conservation of this land will lead to the protection of:
-  undeveloped and unprotected high priority water supply lands,
-  prime agricultural soils and farmland,
-  ecologically significant land,
-  scenic area,
-  recreation land, and
-  habitat for riparian species.

This one piece of land represents all these values. By purchasing this property now, we are claiming that these are the values we as Walpole residents believe in and uphold.

With your help, this will be everyone's land. Together, we can protect and conserve this beautiful, riverfront property for everyone's enjoyment. We need $280,000 to protect this property forever. WE CAN DO IT...by coming together for our town, our neighbors, our children and our grandchildren.

Every dollar counts. Let's make this happen. Donate today!

Donations can also be made by check, made payable to "Walker Road Conservation" and dropped off at the Selectboard Office at the Town Hall, or mailed to the Town of Walpole, PO Box 729, Walpole, NH 03608-0729. These funds are being kept separate from other Town funds. All donations are fully tax deductible.

Please make a gift today - before Thanksgiving - and it will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $5,000. Your donation will have double the impact.
