Tin Mountain Conservation Center

TIN MOUNTAIN CONSERVATION CENTER MISSION:

“To promote an appreciation of the natural environment among children, adults, and families through hands-on programs in the schools, at camps, and in the community and to demonstrate responsible stewardship of natural resources through land protection, research, sustainable forestry, agriculture, and energy.

HISTORY:

In 1980, Barbara Rockwell Henry and David Henry founded Tin Mountain Conservation Center while living at the base of Tin Mountain in Jackson, NH. Today, TMCC is a non-profit environmental organization governed by an active Board of Trustees. A professional staff provides hands-on, year-round environmental education programming throughout the greater Mt. Washington Valley and western Maine. In 2006, a permanent home for Tin Mountain Conservation Center was built on Bald Hill in Albany, NH.
