This area is popular for hikers, hunters and paddlers, but is threatened with rapid development and loss of open space. The Wilderness Society is working to:
- Protect the important wildlands in the area.
- Work with communities to create a network of sustainable forests.
The Mahoosucs are a popular recreation destination. But unsustainable development threatens this area. Learn more about the places to hike, paddle and just have fun outdoors in the Mahoosucs.
We’re working with local groups and partners for a sustainable vision of the Mahoosucs. By balancing conservation and development, we can protect the things that make the Mahoosucs special.
The Wilderness Society joined with a variety of local, regional and national partners to form the Mahoosuc Initiative in 2005.
Hear artists, activists and adventurers share what the ownership and legacy of these American wildlands means to them.
