Now available for viewing on Newport Community Television is “Everlasting Forests, The Mount Sunapee Story.” This Friends of Mount Sunapee (FOMS) program tells about the rare, ancient forest and exemplary natural communities at Mount Sunapee State Park.
The Mount Sunapee story, presented at Veterans Hall in Newbury, New Hampshire, on September 4, 2019, includes a 30-minute presentation by FOMS President Steve Russell followed by audience comments and questions. View the video via NCTV.
The PowerPoint presentation includes historical and ecological information gathered from the New Hampshire Natural Heritage Bureau and the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests.
The Newbury town library and FOMS sponsored the recent event. Additionally, an informational handout produced by FOMS was made available to all attendees.
