The Forest Society's education programs help people to understand the value of our state‚Äôs forests. Join us to explore New Hampshire on field trips, volunteer training and work days, and lecture series. Education programs include forest and wildlife ecology, forestry and forest management, logging, land conservation, N.H. forest history and special seasonal opportunities including vernal pool ecology, winter mammal tracking, winter tree identification and more! Guided hikes and trail work days are offered at the Forest Society's network of more than 190 Forest Reservations that together offer 56,000 acres open to the public to enjoy. Special field trips are occasionally offered to showcase strategic, new land conservation priorities and land protection projects.
