Amanda J.C. Littleton is the District Manager of the Cheshire County Conservation District. Her appreciation for the land blossomed as a child, as she spent her free time exploring the woods behind her home or the shores of Rhode Island. She is a graduate of Antioch University New England's Environmental Studies program with a M.S. in Environmental Education and has completed a B.A. in Anthropology and Psychology at the University of Rhode Island. Before coming to the CCCD, she has held positions in various public outreach and education roles promoting agriculture and the study and conservation of the natural environment. She currently chairs the Localvore Project in the Monadnock region, and is a board member of the Monadnock Sustainability Network, Monadnock Farm & Community Coalition, and Conservation District Employees Association of NH. She has great interest in supporting the region's working landscape for the value that it contributes to the local economy, the good stewardship it provides for our local environment, and the benefits it brings to our rural communities. She lives in Chesterfield NH with her family, and when not working can often be found fixing up their old home, hiking, or playing in the waters of the Monadnock Region.
