The Southern Connection: How North Carolina Helped Save New Hampshire’s Forests

From 7pm

At Nature Learning Center

What do a doctor from the Midwest, a forester from Germany, and a congressman from the South have to do with saving New England’s forests from destruction in the early 1900s? How did they help prevent these cherished woodlands from disappearing? This unlikely trio from the Blue Ridge Mountains helped protect the White Mountains—even though they never set foot there. Join historian James G. Lewis, author of The Forest Service and The Greatest Good, for a talk about the South’s conservation connection to the White Mountains.

This program is part of the White Mountain national Forest Centennial Lecture Series.
