CONCORD, N.H. – The local chapter of a relatively new Canadian organization has donated $6,100 to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Barry Conservation Camp. The organization was originally founded by Jason Mosher of Prince Edward Island and has already given away more than $50,000.
At each quarterly meeting, members contribute $100 apiece then vote on one of three causes to give the money to. The nonprofit with the most votes takes the donation for that meeting.
“I was overwhelmed by the generosity of the group,” said Fish and Game Marketing and Promotion Coordinator Mark Beauchesne. “Some members even contributed additional funds. We are currently in the process of expanding the dining hall which also serves as class room space at Barry Camp and this money will go toward purchasing the furniture and fixtures.”
Barry Camp is operated by Fish and Game in partnership with 4-H through UNH Cooperative Extension. Programs include education in the shooting sports, hunting, fishing, camping, and other outdoor skills. Barry Conservation Camp is in the White Mountain National Forest on the grounds of the Berlin Fish Hatchery. To learn more about the camp, visit www.wildnh.com/barrycamp.
