A kayaker finds solitude on Round Pond at SELT’s Stonehouse Forest in Barrington. Acquired in 2017, the 1,700 acre Stonehouse Forest includes more 11 miles of hiking trails where guests can explore a diversity of forest habitats, unique geological features, and a multitude of streams and wetlands, including the locally famous Stonehouse Pond.

The 2021 Conference banner photo was taken by Jerry Monkman/EcoPhotography, for Southeast Land Trust of NH. Our thanks to both Jerry and SELT for allowing us to use the beautiful image.
