Looking for some fun outdoor time with friends and family? Want to explore God’s gift of New Hampshire forests? Help make St. Thomas More the first New Hampshire parish to complete the Forest Reservation Challenge!

What is the Forest Reservation Challenge? Sponsored by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, the Forest Reservation Challenge invites us to visit33 Forest Reservation sites scattered around our beautiful state. This challenge is for all ages!

Once all 33 sites have had a STM visit (by any STM person or family), each participant will be awarded an embroidered Forest Reservation patch and a colored decal!

How do we get started?
Visit the Forest Reservation Challenge website https://forestsociety.org/challenge for an interactive map of New Hampshire. Each reservation site has a pin. Click on a pin to access information about the site including property details, trail information, directions, and nearby attractions. Then plan your trip!

When should we go? Anytime between May 1 and November 1, 2018.

How do we document our trip? Each reservation on the interactive map has instructions on where to take your site photo. Email your photo to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., with the name of the reservation and Team St. Thomas More in the subject line. Photos will not be shared - if the Forest Society wishes to publish photos in their magazine or on their Facebook page, they must first obtain permission. Once a site has been visited by a STM parishioner or family, the site will be starred on our Forest Reservation Challenge posters on display in the rear of the church and the Student Center.
