Stewardship

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.

With just one last remaining mature Mulberry tree clinging precariously to the steep north bank of the Merrimack River in Concord, Forest Society staff have long-wished to plant replacements at the Merrimack River Outdoor Education & Conservation Area.

The land donation will add to the beautiful 1,090-acre Michael M. and Claudia Yatsevitch Forest in Cornish and Plainfield.

Hikers should follow designated trails, even through well-worn sections.

The Hancock marker describes the Due family and Jack, a once-enslaved African who gained his freedom and lived in Hancock in the late 1700s and early 1800s.

Three guided hikes to get members outside and learning more about history, forestry and stewardship.

The marker to be unveiled September 18 will be the first outside of Portsmouth on the Black Heritage Trail.

Thank you to the volunteers who gave nearly 350 hours of service over 5 days to improve trails.

No cash? No problem! Mobile giving comes to Forest Society reservations.
