It’s easy to see why we work to conserve the Mahoosucs.

With deep forests, splashing waterfalls and easy access to the Appalachian trail, the Mahoosucs is a outdoor wonderland.  We want to make sure that this area is conserved for the benefit of the communities and the habitat in the area.

Our work in the Mahoosucs

The Wilderness Society joined the Mahoosuc Initiative in 2005 to ensure that protecting land and protecting the local economy went hand in hand.

Mahoosuc Initiative

The Mahoosuc Initiative is a coalition of local, regional and national groups. Together, they work with local residents to protect the lands and waters of the Mahoosuc region.

The goals of the Mahoosuc Initiative are to:

  • Identify the region’s most valuable assets
  • Track trends that are changing the region’s land and communities
  • Provide ideas for the future and support to make those ideas a reality

Together, these groups work to expand protected wild lands and preserve connected habitats. We also improve recreational opportunities, like hiking on the Appalachian Trail.
