Of the 154 National Forests in the United States, none had more public support from a diverse group of citizens, organizations, and businesses than the White Mountain National Forest. The forest conservation movement started in New England and eventually led to a lasting national environmental movement today. This presentation will describe the birth of the forest conservation movement in New England, where we are today, and its future challenges.

David Govatski is co-author of Forests for the People – The Story of the Eastern National Forests and is a frequent speaker and writer covering conservation and natural history topics. He was the Secretary of the Weeks Act Centennial Committee in 2011 and co-curator of the Centennial of the White Mountain National Forest exhibition in 2018 at the Museum of the White Mountains. He has visited all 175 National Forests and National Grasslands and retired after a 34-year career with the US Forest Service.
