Patricia Dorothy Watts (1927 – 2016), Blair Folts, Charlie Watts, Green Mountain, 2000


Patricia and her late husband Charlie Watts of Freedom, NH and Boston, MA were instrumental in the inspiration that formed the Green Mountain Conservation Group (GMCG).  Following the passing of her husband, Patricia continued to be a strong voice of support for land conservation, youth environmental education and water quality preservation.  She was a friend and a mentor to GMCG and had a long time commitment to the communities of the Ossipee Watershed.

More recently, Patricia made a lead gift to help jump start the Heron House Building Fund that is enabling GMCG to begin restoration on that property for our new headquarters.  It was through the generosity of kind supporters that Green Mountain Conservation Group announced the acquisition of this building in 2015 .  This wonderful property is located on the Ossipee River and will be named the Patricia and Charles H. Watts II Conservation Center.  Patricia enjoyed many fine days on the Ossipee River as a young woman.  Listening to the flow of this winding River will remind us of her generous and loving spirit forever.  Our thoughts are with the Watts family

Your donation in any amount to the Heron House Building Renovation Fund memorializes the legacy of Patricia and Charlie Watts, and supports the efforts of GMCG to promote appreciation and awareness for clean water and the protection of natural resources in the watershed.  Please help GMCG make the Heron House renovation project successful.
