With the recent passing of 85-year-old Paul Bofinger, the State of New Hampshire lost a remarkable visionary, the Forest Society lost a former leader and others lost a valued mentor who had helped to shape the careers of leaders continuing to work in conservation-related fields of science, education, policy, forestry and philanthropy.
“The Forest Society has long recognized that one of the ways that our work protecting forests connects to people’s everyday lives is by providing clean drinking water,” said Jack Savage, president for the Forest Society.
The United States Senate will soon consider, possibly this week, the Great American Outdoors Act. If the legislation is ultimately signed into law, it will add to the growing impact the program has had on New Hampshire’s landscape.
For the last 27 years, the Forest Society has leaned on the assistance of community volunteers to monitor our conserved lands and help with special projects. Land Stewards form the backbone of our volunteer programs and are integral in meeting our mission.
