Forest Society 2021 Annual Fund Appeal
A simple truth seems better understood every day: Forests are very important.
Forests help to cool a warming planet. They absorb and store carbon. They are the foundation of natural systems that provide flood control, air and water filtration, and water supply. They provide renewable resources for heat, building materials, and new manufacturing innovation.
Spending time in forests offers us spiritual relief in troubled times, measurably lowers our blood pressure, and improves our health and wellness. And forests are fundamental to the character of New Hampshire.
The Forest Society is the organization that has protected, managed, and advocated for forests for 120 years. This is who we are and what we do. Today we own and manage nearly 60,000 acres across New Hampshire, and protect an additional 130,000 acres through conservation easements on private land. We welcome more than 250,000 visitors annually at our 191 forest reservations, from Mt. Major to Mt. Monadnock, and from Pittsburg to Portsmouth.
But we don’t, and we can’t, do it alone. You make it possible. Your generosity pays dividends today and for future generations.
We hope you will take a moment to make a year-end donation, as generous as you can, to join us in remaining dedicated to conserving forests and managing them for the many benefits of clean air and water, wood, wildlife, wellness, and a way of life. Thank you.
