Do Forests Hold Back Floods?

“Attached is a fascinating 8 page article by Benjamin Brooks from the April 1914 issue of Technical World magazine. This is worth reading in relation to the forest and stream flow controversy that was one of the perceptions behind the passage of the Weeks Act. “When mountains and hillsides are denuded of timber are spring freshets inevitable”? The answer is more complex than you might think and the engineers perspective in 1914 on the issue is worth considering.” -David Govatski

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.
