The Forest Society recently completed the first phase of “Forest Society North,” a long-term plan to renovate and restore the landscape, facilities and program at The Rocks in Bethlehem, following the February 2019 fire which destroyed two historic buildings, the Tool Building and the Electric Plant.
The Rocks is home to several species of native animals, from bear and moose to wild turkey, spotted salamanders, and countless bird species. Many of these animals, their habits, and their habitats are featured in our Natural History Programs, offered at The Rocks and other venues throughout the year.
The staff at The Rocks is well-versed in the natural history of northern New Hampshire and enthusiastic about the trove of wildlife treasures found in and around our 1,400-acre property. We offer a plethora of programs — both at The Rocks and at venues around the region — about the area's wildlife, conservation efforts, and farming.
The Rocks offers several programs for school groups throughout the school year. Children are thrilled to explore our property's many acres of farmland and managed wildlife habitat, where they can discover much about the natural world around them.
The Forest Society has been offering engaging programs for motor coach tours at The Rocks for several years. Each of the programs outlined below may be customized to suit the interests of your group. Tours last from 45 to 90 minutes, and we can accommodate up to three coaches at one time.
