WMIA Receives 2015 Forest Service Enduring Service Award -
The White Mountains Interpretive Association was the recipient of the Enduring Service Award, Honorable Mention, from the US Forest Service, Eastern Region. The Award described the WMIA as “a valued partner for over 30 years”.
Over the years, this board has dedicated countless volunteer hours to promote and fund historic, scientific, educational and interpretive programs on the White Mountain National Forest. From retail sales, membership, donations and grants, WMIA has consistently supported living interpretation at the historical Russell Colbath House, campground programs serving hundreds of campers every year, interpretations across the Forest, conservation education programs and materials and has been a source of committed volunteers. With a particular interest in two of our historical buildings, WMIA has been a committed partner in opening and closing these sites as well as carefully maintaining and preserving their his- torical character. Without their commitment, support and outreach, the Forest would not be able to offer the existing programs and staffing.
