Recently we took a family trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. We stopped at an information both in Lincoln. In this center they have an exhibit that talks about the New Hampshire Landscape. While walking through the exhibit, we came across this example of who helps manage the National Forests. Many people help maintain these lands including surveyors.
I have had the opportunity to help survey protected lands in the White Mountains, around Lake
Umbagog, and along the Appalachian Trail in northern Maine. The photo below (right) is a picture of me surveying along a National Forest property (circa 1992).
Just like you maintain your lawn and gardens for your property, the National Forests and Lands need maintenance as well. A surveyor helps in many ways for protecting these important resources.
So I ask you – WHO manages your Land?
