Anonymous Donor Provides $150,000 For Project That Would Help Block Northern Pass
A donor who asked to remain anonymous has contributed $150,000 to the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forest to help it buy a conservation easement at the Balsams resort in Dixville Notch.
The forest society has a deal with the Tillotson Corp. to buy the easement for $850,000. With a deadline of January 15th it has raised $609,000, according to a news release.
The easement covers about 5,800 acres as well as a right-of-way that the Northern Pass project sought to use for its transmission lines.
Northern Pass has offered to buy the easement if the society can't come up with the money.
