News In & Around NEHSA

Message from New President Erik Wheeler

I wanted to take a moment to set the tone for the up-coming season.  Several months ago, the Board surveyed our volunteers and that established several clearly stated objectives for NEHSA.

Delivery of NEHSA’s Mission:  Specifically addressing the current NEHSA building.  Well, you’ve all done an incredible job supporting the NEHSA lodge expansion financially and we can’t thank you enough!  That said, the permitting process remains challenging now that it is covered under newly enforced laws governing the State of New Hampshire which requires permitting through the National Parks Service.  We have complied with their many requests, including an endangered species study, and are awaiting final approval.  Unfortunately, as we move closer to the start of 2016/17 winter programming, breaking ground now looks improbable this year.
