Protecting New Hampshire’s Wild Places

Thursday, July 23, 2009

Covering almost 800,000 acres in New Hampshire and Maine, the White Mountain National Forest (WMNF) contains some of the most untamed country remaining in the Northeast – yet the Forest Service is approving more destructive logging projects on this single protected “roadless” forests than it has for the rest of the entire country combined.

These actions could deliver devastating blows to our unroaded lands, forests that safeguard clean drinking water for millions of Americans, provide an abundance of recreational opportunities, protect habitat for wildlife, and help provide a defense against the increasing threats of global warming.
