Are you a fern fan?

I suppose to most, ferns are just those plants that brush up against your calves while walking or hiking. They tickle and often make tick-weary hikers nervous wherever they lean into the trail.

Do you ever find yourself wondering what’s up with that old farm equipment in the woods or what kind of wildflowers blanket the trailside? NH Forest Explorer is your one stop shop for deepening your understanding of the world around you.

For decades, environmentalists and public service agencies have attempted various slogans to teach people about the harm litter causes wildlife, water, and our environment and to ask more people to take personal responsibility. What will it take to stop our litter problem once and for all?

With more than 80,000 people hiking Mt. Major every year, the popular hiking spot has seen its share of excessive trash, damage to vegetation, trail erosion, disturbance to wildlife, and more. As a result, Mt. Major was chosen as one of 19 Hot Spots nationwide to be the focus of training from the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics.
