Take the Mahoosuc Way Pledge

A simple way to show your commitment to caring for this special place. 

Taking the pledge also gives you access to periodic updates about local events, activities, and ways you can help.

Check out this video to learn what the Mahoosuc Way means to local residents, businesses and community leaders.

The Mahoosuc-Way

The Mahoosuc area’s mountains, rivers, lakes, and forests provide amazing recreational opportunities for visitors and local residents.
Our working forests are also an important source of income for private landowners and raw materials to support local wood product manufacturing businesses. Over generations we learned to depend on each other and work together for our shared benefit. Tending our working landscape and respecting each other is at the core of how we do things here – it’s The Mahoosuc Way.

Pledge to Embrace Our Place

As a visitor or local resident, we are asking you to join us in the Embrace Our Place pledge

Together, we are committed to creating a sustainable travel destination and ensuring we preserve local quality of life and community vitality. This pledge is part of our commitment to ensure these lands and ecosystems are able to be enjoyed for generations to come.
The Embrace Our Place pledge helps us communicate our community values to newcomers and visitors. At the heart of our values, is a desire for a collective action to ensure we preserve this unique place.
