Recreation

Our reservations are open to the public for many kinds of pedestrian recreation.

The Reservation Stewardship Department is responsible for the management of the Forest Society’s fee-owned lands (over 56,000 acres, the Forest Society’s largest asset).   These lands are managed with a vision that is focused on the future, ensuring the biological richness of the state while providing economic and social returns to the organization, its members, and the public.

I rolled into the parking lot of the Mountain Wanderer Book Store in Lincoln, New Hampshire. I was there to meet two White Mountain hiking experts. Authors Mike Dickerman of Bond Cliff Books and Steve Smith, editor of the Appalachian Mountain Club’s White Mountain Hiking Guide.

Autumn as arrived. As the leaves begin to change we want to take a moment to reflect on this year's exciting (and humid) summer season.

The mountain that everybody hikes is now a place where everybody can learn thanks to the Forest Society’s New Hampshire Forest Explorer for smartphones.

Enter your favorite shots taken on a Forest Society reservation OR on any property conserved through an easement with the Forest Society, by September 15 (deadline extended!) for a chance to have your photo published in the autumn 2018 issue of Forest Notes, free passes
