Who We Are

Districts around the United States were organized over half a century ago in response to devastating soil erosion.

The State of New Hampshire enacted legislation in 1946 to establish 10 Districts, one in each county. Strafford County Conservation District is a subdivision of the State Government under RSA 430:B.

The District is managed by a board of 5 volunteer supervisors appointed by the State Conservation Committee with monthly meetings open to the public.

Supervisors are county landowners from diverse backgrounds with the wise management of the county’s natural resources.

The Board of Supervisors meets the second Wednesday of every month at 9:00 A.M.

  • Mark Perry, Chairman, Rochester
  • Dorn Cox, Vice Chairman, Lee
  • Robin Aikman, Supervisor, Rollinsford
