NFHERN Road Trip

Road Trip! It’s time to dust off the IPod (or CD player or tape deck) and play some Journey (any song will do) and head off into Northern New Hampshire for the Northern Forest Higher Education Resource Network’s second annual meeting. We have several engaging programs and excellent speakers so we know you’ll have a good time at the Mountain View Grand, but as they say, half the fun is getting there! So on your way up (or way back) here are some quick stops featuring some of the best that the Grand North has to offer.

Forest History Society has prepared a new website for the Weeks Act.

“To help celebrate the centennial of the Weeks Act in 2011, the Forest History Society has prepared a new website. Passed in 1911, the Weeks Act authorized the federal government to purchase lands in the eastern United States for stream-flow protection, and allowed for those lands to be managed as national forests by the U.S. Forest Service. The law also called for public-private cooperation for fire fighting around the country. Though subsequent laws expanded the power and reach of the act to western forests, for all intents and purposes the Weeks Act is the “organic act” of the eastern national forests. The website makes use of the extensive holdings of the Forest History Society, and may be found in our U.S. Forest Service History web pages at. You will find a flyer attached with more information. Please feel free to post it or forward it to interested parties.” – Cheryl Oakes

Northern Forest Studies: A Regional Approach to Undergraduate Learning

This paper proposes the development of an integrative, immersive, and diverse placebased
undergraduate program focused on the nature, culture, and economics of the
Northern Forest region of New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Such a
program in Northern Forest Studies capitalizes on a developing inter-institutional
dialogue begun in November, 2008 within the framework of the Northern Forest Higher
Education Resource Network (NFHERN) to draw on existing offerings in colleges and
universities across the region in the framework of a broad, regional consortium of
programs and courses.
