Community and Visitor Engagement

Community and Visitor Engagement

Building a mutually respectful relationship between our local communities and visitors to the Mahoosuc area is critical to ensuring that the region remains a healthy place to live and visit for the long term. Residents and visitors must work together to understand and manage the positive and negative impacts of tourism on the local economy, environment, and culture.

Our work is guided by these strategic principles:

  • Taking a collaborative approach between community leaders and the tourism industry.
  • Showcasing and celebrating the region’s landowners, history and industries, which builds understanding and respect.
  • Educating visitors about local culture, traditions, and stewardship is central to ensuring positive experiences for everyone involved.


  • The Embrace Our Place Pledge engages people in living out The Mahoosuc Way, whether they live here or are visiting.

  • Active social media platforms, newsletters, and local media reach visitors and locals with messages about Mahoosuc Way projects and practices.
