The Moosalamoo National Recreation Area Designation:
The Moosalamoo Association worked with the USDA Forest Service to achieve the National Recreation Area designation for the region. The goal was achieved in January 2007 with the signing of the New England Wilderness Act. As the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area, this almost 16,000-acre treasure joins an elite group of 44 NRAs nationwide. It is a unique designation that recognizes the quality of this area for recreating.
