Board and Staff

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire is guided by a Board of Directors charged with guiding the Foundation and establishing a development plan for future funding.

Hailing from all corners of the state, and from all walks of life, members of the Board of Directors are dedicated to the Mission and Goal of the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire.  As volunteers, they give freely of their time and talents with no remuneration, so that the Foundation can support New Hampshire Fish and Game and help pass along our treasured New Hampshire heritage.
