Earth Day 2021
Celebrate the earth all month long with the Forest Society this April.
In previous years, cleanup day at Mount Major has been a group activity. For 2021, masks are suggested, the hike is self-guided, and the trash pickup is on your own, a DIY challenge.
Here are some of the virtual and in-person activities you can participate in, while continuing to protect your health and the health of our New Hampshire communities:
- Tuesday, April 6 & Ongoing: Learn about a range of topics from habitat restoration to edible wild plants as part of the Forest Society's 2021 Cottrell-Baldwin Environmental Lecture Series. The final program takes place on April 6 but all of the presentations have been recorded and you can watch the videos HERE.
- Thursday, April 22: Visit Mount Major for a self-guided hike on Earth Day and take part in a DIY cleanup challenge. We'll provide the trash bags and gloves! Show some love to one of the region's most loved recreation areas. LEARN MORE
