BARRINGTON, N.H. (AP) - A 1,500-acre plot of undeveloped forestland in Barrington once slated to become a private game hunting reserve will instead be conserved and available to the public for outdoor recreation.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1YBXI5M) that the Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire has reached an agreement to acquire the property adjacent to Stonehouse Pond, and that the conservation project has been awarded $420,000 from the New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment program.

Officials say in addition to recreational opportunities, the land also provides important wildlife habitat and natural resources. The LCHIP funding will be one of many public and private sources necessary to acquire and maintain the property.
