History and Purpose


The idea of the NH Conservation License Plate (Moose Plate) program started with fourth grade students at the Holderness Central School in 1993.

In 1998, the New Hampshire General Court passed legislation creating the Moose Plate program to supplement existing state conservation and cultural heritage funding.


The NH Conservation License Plate (Moose Plate) program supports the protection of critical resources in New Hampshire, including scenic lands, historic sites and artifacts, and plants and wildlife. Revenues from the sale of Moose Plates are distributed to designated state agencies for the purpose of:

  • Preserving and/or purchasing significant, publicly owned historic properties, works of art, artifacts and archaeological sites
  • Researching and managing non-game wildlife species, their habitat, native plant species, exemplary natural communities and educating the public about these species
  • Providing grants to counties, municipalities and non-profits for resource conservation projects
  • Expanding roadside wildflower and lilac plantings
  • Administering the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP)

Choose the Moose License Plate... and Wear it Proudly!
