BERLIN, N.H. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service has honored Nancy Bell, the Conservation Fund’s New Hampshire and Vermont State director, for her work conserving land in Northern New England.

Bell received the Chief’s Award for decades of work conserving significant landscapes in the Northern Forest and adjacent to Appalachian National Scenic Trail.

Bell, White Mountain National Forest Supervisor Thomas Wagner, District Ranger Katherine Stuart and Lands Program Manager Craig Young were nominated for protecting and adding nearly 4,800 acres to the Appalachian Trail in Success Township. That project is part of a multi-phase effort to conserve over 30,000 acres.

Bell is credited with helping conserve about 500,000 acres across northern New England during a 20-plus-year career.
