White Mountain National Forest

This is New England’s wild backyard. The White Mountain National Forest includes some of the most untamed and beautiful country in the Northeast.

The Wilderness Society is working to preserve this grand forest for future generations. Our work strives to protect some of the wildest parts of White Mountain National Forest from logging and building.

Why the White Mountain National Forest?

This is New England’s wild backyard. Due in part to good forest stewardship, it remains among the most visited of the nation’s national forests.

Work we’re doing

The Wilderness Society is actively engaged with the US Forest Service to make sure that this wild area is safe from increased logging. We’re also making sure that the forest is managed in the best way possible for people and wildlife.

Our partners

To protect the White Mountain National Forest, The Wilderness Society works with the U.S. Forest Service. We provide scientific and policy expertise to make sure that the forest remains wild.

    The bill would change how the federal government budgets for the suppression of wildfire disasters, to make it similar to the way other disasters are funded.
