Biodiversity Committee

A subcommittee of the Hanover Conservation Commission

Meeting agendas are posted on bulletin boards at Town Hall.
Meeting minutes are available in the Planning & Zoning Office.


Starting in 2017, Hanover's Biodiversity Committee collaborated with many Upper Valley conservation groups on a quest to create 100 new pollinator gardens in the Upper Valley.

NEW Pollinator Garden at Hanover High School, installed in 2018 

For NEW gardens as of 2017, we would like to have documentation to describe any new gardens, so pick up a form in the Hanover Planning office or download it here.


The first 100 people to describe their garden and submit it to Hanover's Planning Office will receive this plaque for their garden.
