Natural Resources Stewards

  • group of volunteers in the woods

Learn, Explore & Share the Nature of New Hampshire

Natural Resources Stewards are people of all ages and walks of life who love New Hampshire’s outdoors: our trees and parks, forests and fields, the rocky soil, plants, and pollinators within our farms and gardens, the lakes, rivers, streams, and bogs that connect our landscape, the diversity of wildlife from salamanders to songbirds, and osprey to otters that share these special places.

Stewards are a community of volunteers who make a difference caring for the nature of New Hampshire. Learn more about the Natural Resources Stewards Program.
