The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests has named Scarlett Moberly as its new program director at Forest Society North at The Rocks in Bethlehem. In this role, Moberly will develop and implement educational, outreach, and recreational programs and events to be hosted at The Rocks in the newly renovated Carriage Barn, the outdoor amphitheater, and across the 1,400 acres of conservation land.

“I truly am looking forward to my role as the program director at The Rocks,” said Moberly. “Bringing the community together with engaging programming, getting to know our volunteers, and welcoming all to Forest Society North at The Rocks property are my top priorities.”

Moberly, a resident of Littleton, will collaborate with staff across the organization to further develop the visitor experience at Forest Society North and invigorate a well-established volunteer program. Forest Society North at The Rocks serves as the Forest Society’s North Country hub for community engagement through recreation, educational programming, and tourism centered around this scenic working tree farm and historic estate. Since 1989, The Rocks Christmas Tree Farm has grown to be a popular destination and for many families is part of the annual holiday tradition of cutting a Christmas tree.

Jack Savage, president of the Forest Society, added, “We are so fortunate that Scarlett has joined our growing team based at Forest Society North at The Rocks. Her deep roots in the North Country, expertise in art and entrepreneurship, and love of nature will help us grow our presence and engagement in the community. She is a perfect fit for The Rocks.”

Prior to joining the Forest Society, Moberly was the assistant director for the Women’s Rural Entrepreneurial Network (WREN) in Bethlehem. She also served as the marketing and programs manager for WREN. Moberly’s entrepreneurial spirit and love of art lead her to open Nightshade Contemporary Art Gallery in Littleton, which featured local and regional artists. Moberly received a Master of Arts in Art and Museum Studies from Georgetown University and her Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Eco Gastronomy from the University of New Hampshire. She resides in Littleton with her partner, Robert, and their son, Charles. Moberly has a passion for community engagement and preserving and promoting the North Country’s cultural and natural resources. In her spare time, Moberly loves to garden, cook, ski, and go for walks in the woods, especially if there’s a great swimming hole at the end of the trail.
