Since 1966, the Conservation Law Foundation has been working for healthy communities and a clean environment throughout New England. Using a combination of law, science, and the marketplace, CLF seeks to identify and implement practical solutions to the region’s most pressing environmental problems. Renowned for its work to ban oil drilling in Georges Bank, off the Gulf of Maine, CLF stands today as a beacon of environmental stewardship. In 1977, the organization helped prevent the construction of a four-lane divided highway through Franconia Notch; in 1983, it successfully made the economic case that led to the abandonment of a second unit at the Seabrook nuclear plant.
CLF launched its New Hampshire office, located in Concord, in 1997. Since then, the New Hampshire team has undertaken ambitious campaigns to help protect the Granite State’s most treasured natural resources, including the Seacoast’s Great Bay estuary, where they’ve invoked the Clean Water Act to help stave off nutrient pollution which threatens to jeopardize a pillar of the Seacoast’s cultural – and economic – heritage, and where, in 2012, they launched their Great Bay-Piscataqua Waterkeeper program. They’ve also worked to shut down New Hampshire’s costly and environmentally devastating coal plants, while advocating on behalf of a clean, renewable energy revolution throughout New England.
CLF understands the economic and environmental risks and dangers to New Hampshire – and New England as a whole – posed by climate change. Already the state is seeing more severe storms, altered growing seasons, and stresses on native wildlife species. By educating the public and serving as a go-to resource for effective solutions, CLF is actively seeking strategies to help reduce greenhouse gas pollution, while helping assure that New England remains a great place to live, work, and play.
