White Mountain National Forest Rolls Out New, Interactive Story Map on Forest Management

CAMPTON, NH, May 12, 2017 – The White Mountain National Forest is excited to roll out an interactive Story Map designed to give the public new ways to learn about Forest Management on the National Forest. This digital application allows the visitor to zoom to an area of interest and click to dig deeper into topics of choice. Photos, maps and the whim of the reader work together to give a personalized tour.

“This Story Map gives us the opportunity to reach out and communicate with the public in new ways,” said Tiffany Benna, Public Affairs Officer. “Interactive maps and photos are a good way to tell the history of how these National Forest Lands came to be and why we manage them for multiple benefits.”

On this site, the visitor will be able to compare different types of forestry and wildlife habitat management techniques through photos of implementation on the ground. They will also be able to watch the vegetation in a harvest unit grow over time through aerial photos, providing a variety of wildlife habitats and food opportunities.

On your next visit to the White Mountain National Forest, explore your favorite places with a new understanding of multiple benefits on public lands. Visit the Story Map at https://usfs.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/index.html?appid=3437586fa0c54961b2337fd3773c9830
