In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the health and well-being of our staff and community is our greatest priority. Here is how we are doing our part to prevent the continued spread of COVID-19.
Under New Hampshire’s "Stay-at-Home" orders from the Governor, we can all continue to enjoy the outdoors. Our 190 Forest Reservations are open. However, we urge you to “hike local” and avoid popular hiking spots like Mount Major. Use our reservation guide to find a quiet outdoor place near you.
We have cancelled or postponed the following events:
- Spring conservation landowner resource fair scheduled for April 9 is postponed.
- Volunteer Easement Monitor Program training scheduled for April 24 is postponed.
- Cottrell-Baldwin Lecture Series, which was scheduled to take place on March 17, 24, 31 and April 7. We hope to reschedule it at a later date.
- NH Maple Dinner scheduled for March 27. We will be in touch with those who have purchased tickets with more details.
- NH Maple Experience at The Rocks through the end of the season (scheduled from March 21- April 4.) You can still support your local sugar makers by purchasing our syrup online: www.therocksgiftshop.com.
- Stewardship day at Mount Major, scheduled for April 22, is cancelled.
- Art exhibit featuring Owl's Nest Farm and Studio.
Additionally, there are two events we were hosting in partnership with other organizations or participating in that have been cancelled: Conservation Film Fest on March 28 in Massachusetts; Saving Special Places Conference on April 4 in Alton.
Finally, the Conservation Center will be closed to visitors through June 15 in accordance with the Governor's "Stay-at-Home" order. As always, we will keep you apprised of Forest Society news via email, social media, and our website. (Join our e-mail list here to stay in touch!)
Thank you for your continued support.
