Guided Hike – Addition to Moose Mountains Reservation

Join a guided hiking tour of the proposed 150- acre tract addition to the adjacent Moose Mountains Reservation in Middleton with Forest Society naturalist and Director of Education, Dave Anderson.

Learn about the natural history of this key tract adjacent to the Moose Mountains Reservation, and part of a 22,000-acre forested area within N.H.’s coastal watershed region. The 150-acre addition’s working forest is part of the headwaters of the Salmon Falls River. Conserving the tract enhances protection of water quality, wildlife habitat and scenic values. This tract contains diverse habitat for wildlife populations from the frogs and salamanders that breed in this property’s many vernal pools to the roaming moose, bobcats and bears that require contiguous larger, intact tracts of forest habitat to provide safe travel corridors. We'll look for vernal pools and eggs of breeding amphibians and explain the important role of forests relative to water quality and quantity in an aquatic vernal pool food chain.
