Since 2001, the NH Conservation License Plate (Moose Plate) program has contributed to the ongoing success of more than 150 projects around New Hampshire. Every county has benefited from the funds raised through the sale of Moose Plates.
Plaistow resident Jim Collins created the design for the Moose Plate.
A self-taught artist, Collins painted the four original designs for the license plate : a purple finch, a covered bridge, a maple tree and sap bucket, and the bull moose. The bull moose design was chosen by the public to be the first NH Conservation License Plate .
