Happy Birthday White Mountain National Forest!

Amendment to Post 03-02-11: I jumped the gun on this one. The Week's Act is 100 years old today (well, yesterday now) which protected the forest. I found out from a Facebook follower that the actual date the WMNF was officially created, was May 16th. Sorry for the misinformation on this one. I had assumed the two were not exclusive. Thanks Michael, for pointing this out!

I wanted to take a minute and wish the White Mountain National Forest a happy birthday. It’s the big one-zero-zero for the WMNF! That’s right, 100 years of providing “Many Uses” to the people of New Hampshire and all around. Happy Birthday White Mountain National Forest!!! Here’s to 100 more years!!!

  1. I did not know it was the WMNF Bday! That must be why they announced a White Mountain Museum today http://www.boston.com/news/local/new_hampshire/articles/2011/02/26/nh_university_plans_museum_of_the_white_mountains/

  2. Hi Grant,

    Apparently I wasn't completely accurate with the info. It is the 100 anniversary of the Week's Act which protected the forest. Apparently it didn't get its name until May that year. Protecting the forest was the first step though. Thanks for the link...I'll be checking it out shortly.
