About Moosalamoo Association

The Moosalamoo Association is a citizens' advisory group that advocates on behalf of Moosalamoo National Recreation Area to plan for and manage quality recreational opportunities, education, and wildlife habitat conservation.

    • A new trail map was completed and printed.
    • New railings were installed on a bridge spanning Sucker Brook on Elsie’s Loop.
