WHF of NH Receives $10,000 Donation

Wildlife Heritage Foundation of NH receives Grappone Automotive Group donation.

CONCORD, N.H. -- The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire has received a $5,000 donation from the Grappone Automotive Group in Concord, which was matched by the Toyota Dealer Match Program. The $10,000 will be equally split between the Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) program at NH Fish and Game and Barry Conservation Camp.

Amanda Grappone Osmer, fourth generation steward of Grappone Automotive Group, comments that, "I love supporting any organization that brings people closer to nature, which both B.O.W. and Barry Conservation Camp do. I really feel that the more connected people are to nature, the more willing they are to be kind to themselves, each other, and their surroundings. Especially when it comes to younger people, I feel strongly that experiencing the outdoors through activities like camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, and trail running can be powerful confidence builders. I learned from my time working with Outward Bound that connecting to nature while challenging yourself can really bring out the best in you."

Becoming an Outdoors Woman programs are workshops focused on creating opportunities for women to learn outdoor skills they can use to enjoy fishing, hunting and many other outdoor pursuits. Since 1995, NH Fish and Game has offered BOW workshops throughout the year for participants to learn new activities or improve their skills in a fun, supportive environment. The donation from Grappone Automotive Group will be used to purchase a trailer to transport equipment to class locations around the state.

Barry Conservation Camp hosts more than 260 campers each summer in seven week-long sessions focusing on conservation and increasing the campers' knowledge of the natural world, as well as opportunities to learn fishing, shooting or archery skills, wilderness training, or a peek into the life and duties of a NH Conservation Officer. Grappone Automotive Group's donation will be used toward the much-needed addition of dining hall/classroom space.

The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of NH is the official non-profit partner of the NH Fish and Game Department, and works to secure funds in support of the Department's critical education, conservation, wildlife and law enforcement programs important to preserving New Hampshire's quality of outdoor life for generations to come.
