Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire Announces New Website; Donald H. Beauchesne Appointed to Board
CONCORD, N.H. -- The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire launched its new website earlier this month with a new domain name: www.nhwildlifefoundation.org. The colorful, user-friendly site showcases the varied New Hampshire Fish and Game Department programs and events supported by the Foundation through grants and sponsorships, as well as results of fundraising and partnership activities coordinated through the Foundation, and provides an avenue for making secure online donations. The site is sponsored by the engineering firm of Fay, Spofford and Thorndike, a firm that has worked with Fish and Game for many years.
Already getting high marks for excellent design and easy navigation, the website will greatly improve the Foundation's visibility and outreach. “In this Internet-savvy day and age, the web clearly is the best tool for reaching out to those who wish to support the N.H. Fish and Game Department’s critical wildlife conservation programs,” said Nancy Berliner, the Foundation’s Development Coordinator.
In other news, the Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire Board of Directors announces its newest board member, Donald H. Beauchesne of Hopkinton. A native New Englander, he comes to the Board with over fifty years of enjoyment of hunting, fishing, camping and boating throughout the Northeast and Canada. Now retired, Beauchesne brings a wealth of experience in operations, marketing and strategic planning as a previous executive in the health insurance field. He is active with several sporting, hunting, fishing and snowmobile clubs, and a strong advocate for the stewardship of New Hampshire’s wildlife heritage. When asked about his expectations in serving the Foundation, Beauchesne said: “I hope to help establish a strategic plan for the foundation that assures a firm definition of its mission and business practices, so potential sources of income are applied to meaningful projects in close consultation with the Fish and Game Department.”
The Wildlife Heritage Foundation of New Hampshire is the official non-profit partner of the N.H. Fish and Game Department. The Foundation raises money and works with wildlife professionals and conservation education partners to fund the Department’s conservation of wildlife and natural places important to New Hampshire’s family traditions such as hiking, hunting, fishing and watching wildlife. Funding for the Foundation’s grant program comes from individual and corporate donors, and from the annual auction of fish and game permits and licenses.
