In 2018, we’ll celebrate our 30th Anniversary with a variety of events, beginning with a Film Festival on February 20th.

Frisky Hill 2 in Gilmanton Conserved

Sept. 2017 - Many people stop by the side of the road in awe of the ragged outline of the Belknap Mountain Range, visible from the top of Frisky Hill on Route 107 in Gilmanton. Now that Five Rivers holds a conservation easement on the entire property, the fields that provide the outstanding view will never be developed.
