Wildlife

The Forest Society's mission includes conserving land that supports New Hampshire's native animals and plants, so that wildlife remains a part of our everyday world. Visit this page to explore stories, projects and stewardship related to wildlife and habitat.

Something Wild is a radio show hosted by Forest Society Senior Director of Education Dave Anderson and Chris Martin, NH Audubon Raptor Biologist, and produced by Jessica Hunt. Dave and Chris have been exploring the wonder of the landscape that surrounds us in New Hampshire for over 20 years!
