In the early 1700s more and more people were leaving England and coming to the American Colonies for a new life and hoping for less control from King George III. Forestry was an important industry in the new colonies and continues to be in NH today.
Members of the NH Land Trust Coalition recently had the opportunity to visit the new marker designating the John Kulish Forest/Welch Family Farm as a point of interest along New Hampshire's Black Heritage Trail.
There are so many amazing women involved with furthering the Forest Society's mission. This March, we highlight a few of these women and extend our appreciation to all women of the Forest Society and beyond.
