Friends of Mount Sunapee has some very exciting news to share with you. We are announcing the release of a new film focused on Mount Sunapee’s Old Growth Forest. For the past several months, we have been working with documentary/educational filmmaker Ray Asselin. The focus of this collaboration is the production of a film The Forgotten Forest Primeval Re-Discovering Mount Sunapee’s Old Growth https://youtu.be/beytGX2dOR highlighting the rare, exemplary forest on Mount Sunapee as well as the early history of its protection as Forest Society’s first reservation in 1911.
Mr. Asselin has produced numerous documentaries sometimes reaching audiences in excess of a million viewers. He is a passionate advocate for Old Growth Forests and has worked in the past with terrestrial ecologist Tom Wessels and with Bob Leverett whose pioneering work on Eastern Old Growth was a catalyst in this field of study. This film features terrestrial ecologist Chris Kane who rediscovered Mount Sunapee’s Old Forest in 1997 as well as Dave Anderson Forest Society’s Senior Director of Education.
We hope you find the film enjoyable and informative.
