"MONADNOCK: The Mountain that Stands Alone"
"The definitive film about our mountain.
It is the second most climbed mountain in the world.
Rich with history, wildlife, and many stories.
A treasure of our region, the State of New Hampshire, and our Nation."
The Forest Society currently owns a total of 4,519 acres on Mount Monadnock in Jaffrey and Dublin.
Mount Monadnock is one of the most-climbed mountains in the western hemisphere. In 1914, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests conserved its first tract of 406 acres on Mount Monadnock, beginning a long-term effort to protect the natural integrity of the mountain and its surroundings. Since then, the Forest Society has acquired over 5,000 acres at Mount Monadnock and Gap Mountain in the towns of Dublin, Marlborough, Troy, and Jaffrey. The Forest Society leases much of this land to the State to be operated as Monadnock State Park.
The new documentary film "MONADNOCK: The Mountain that Stands Alone" will premiere October 6 in Jaffrey at the Park Theater at 7 pm with a Q&A panel to follow. An interview with Forest Society Senior Director of Education Dave Anderson is included in the film.
Celebrate Monadnock and its long legacy of natural and cultural history at this special community event organized by the Park Theater.
