New Hampshire residents challenge Yale: 'Stop destroying our forests'


Students walk on the campus of elite Yale University in New Haven, Conn. 

NEW HAVEN — On Wednesday Yale students and residents of New Hampshire challenged Yale's environmental stewardship of woodlands by the University's endowment at a teach-in in front of Yale University President Peter Salovey's office. Yale is the largest landowner in Coös County New Hampshire, holding 125,000 acres of prime forestland. Yale has leased 24 miles of that land to a controversial power line project that is opposed by national and local environmental groups, and by 30 of the 31 towns that the line will pass through.
