On Saturday, November 7, the Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire(SELT) will celebrate the 13th Annual Fall Foliage Fundraiser at the Portsmouth Harbor Events and Conference Center. This party is the Land Trust’s biggest event of the year and helps support the organization’s conservation and stewardship efforts.

The Fall Foliage Fundraiser will feature a silent auction with over 100 items donated from local businesses, and a live auction orchestrated by a professional auctioneer. The live auction will include many exciting items like a week stay at Mittersill Alpine Resort in Franconia Notch, a weekend stay slope-side at Sugarloaf, and Cabernet Lovers Dream Collection. The night will showcase live music by Sea Smoke, a photo booth, delicious hors d’oeuvres and desserts as well as complimentary beer & wine.

 SELT is a nonprofit conservation organization working throughout the southeastern region of New Hampshire. The Southeast Land Trust’s mission is to protect and sustain the land in our community for clean water, fresh food, outdoor recreation, healthy forests and wildlife. In 2014, the Southeast Land Trust merged with the Strafford Rivers Conservancy to create a stronger land trust and protect an even greater portion of southeastern New Hampshire.

Like most land trusts, SELT protects New Hampshire land through conservation easements, deed restrictions, and by acquiring full property ownership. When a conservation easement is put into place, properties can be protected for wildlife habitat, education, recreational activities, and many other uses, and SELT monitors the property throughout the year while staying in touch with the landowner.

Many residents are not aware that some of their favorite places in the area are protected by conservation easements between the land owner, SELT, and the partnering town. has also secured full ownership of numerous properties through donations, wills, and sales, in which the organization conserves the land and the property owner no longer pays taxes or manages it.

To continue to secure conservation easements and property ownership, the Southeast Land Trust relies on the support of donors throughout the year, and funding from the annual Fall Foliage Fundraiser each November.
