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.
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.
A collection of photographs, "Fauna of the Galapagos," by Godfrey (Jeff) Sluder are on display at the Forest Society's Conservation Center in Concord until the end of August 2019.
Godfrey (Jeff) Sluder has been a resident of Kingston for the last 15 years. He first became interested in using the camera when he was 19 and took a trip out West. Since then, he has carried a camera with him wherever he goes.
As spring tentatively unfolds around the state, (and the more diligent of us celebrate International Migratory Bird Day - 5/11) the familiar nuisance of black flies also reappears. And as annoying as we find them, as we’ve discussed earlier, they are a sign of healthy eco-system.
With two consecutive sun-filled days, the annual spring spectacle on the floodplain has been in full swing this week. The early mornings have been stunning. Newly unfurled ferns and Canada mayflowers on the forest floor glow as though the ground were producing its own light.
