GSA’s are invited to the annual tour of the White Mountain National Forest tour on October 12th! In addition to being a great field trip this is your chance to learn more about what the National Forest is and what it has to offer. This year we’ve tried to put together a tour of a “less traveled” route. Whether you are staffing a welcome center along Rt. 93, the airport welcome center, or a chamber in downtown Manchester, everyone will learn something they didn’t know before. So sign up and look forward to a fun day on the White Mountain National Forest and get your White Mountain National Forest Certification! This year’s tour will begin at Forest Service headquarters in Campton (Exit 27) followed by a tour beginning with the Franconia Notch State Park area and then back onto the White Mountain National Forest. There will be several stops throughout the day and doing some walking/hiking. Please wear appropriate foot wear, and as always dress for the weather! Plan to pack a picnic lunch for the trip. Carpooling is encouraged.


Attend any TWO of these annual GSA Certification tours, and receive the special designation and pin.
