Join us for the 11th annual Monadnock Trails Week!  Volunteers are needed to help refurbish hiking trails on New Hampshire's most hiked mountain, Mount Monadnock.  Projects will include bog bridging, stone staircases, cleaning and/or construction of new waterbars, clearing a nature trail, and more.  No experience is necessary, but you should be willing to get dirty!  Each day runs from 9am-3pm; volunteers can join for just one day, or as many as you like.

On March 16, 22 people gathered at the Forest Society's Rocks Estate in Bethlehem to learn pruning techniques for wild apple trees.
