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.
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.
