A diverse group of individuals and organizations have combined efforts to create an official website to promote information, events, and other opportunities related to the 2011 celebration of the Weeks Act centennial. In addition to providing an overview of all of the events and educational opportunities related to the centennial celebration, www.WeeksLegacy.org is a treasure trove of information about the history of the Act, cultural arts unique to the region, and multi-media presentations.
Not only is this a great site to visit to get information, it’s interactive! Share stories about your forest experiences and read those shared by other visitors on the Memories page. Has your family grown tired of your annual recounting of Uncle Bob climbing that tree in record speed when he heard a bull frog for the first time? Tell it here! You’ve got a whole new audience! Bookmark www.WeeksLegacy.org and return to visit it often for updates, new tales, and to keep track of upcoming events.
www.WeeksLegacy.org is part of a coordinated New Hampshire effort celebrating the Weeks Act Centennial and honoring the tradition of conservation and partnerships exemplified by the act, which created Eastern National Forests. Celebrating the Weeks Act and the creation of Eastern National Forests provides an opportunity to promote increased awareness of sustainable forestry, land stewardship and citizen-based conservation.
