Moosalamoo (pronounced moose-ah-la-moo) is derived from the Abenaki word “Mozalômo” meaning “moose call, song or sound”

Good Deeds

"Good deeds done dirt cheap" to paraphrase a song lyric. As trail stewards, several times a year Moosalamoo Association's board and community members volunteer their labor and equipment to accomplish small, but vital projects within the MNRA. Check out some of our recent efforts. 

Elsie's Loop Bridge - Railings
This bridge had been without railings for a few years creating a safety concern for XC skiers rapidly approaching the bridge on a downhill curve. 
Resources: Six volunteers and 55+ manhours

Water Tower Hill Network
Installed sign posts and "You Are Here" signs throughout the network. Via an agreement with USFS, an excavator completed extensive ditching and water bars.
Resources: Four volunteers and 20+ manhours

Robert Frost Interpretive Area - Toilet Landscaping
A team removed existing sod and installed new plantings in front of the toilets. 
Resources: Six volunteers and 55+ manhours

Oak Ridge Trail Bridge Replacement 
A collapsed trail bridge was demolished and replaced with a new bridge supported by three 20-foot trusses sistered together with six new 2x12x20 pressure-treated timbers donated by rk MILES.
Resources: 15 volunteers and 100+ manhours

Bear Boxes
To keep campers' food stored safely board members sourced the materials, painted, and installed bear boxes in the Moosalamoo Campground. 
Resources: Two volunteers and 20+ manhours

Moosalamoo Association is grateful for support from its members and many local businesses.
