GORHAM, N.H. (AP) - A mobile museum that explores the history of forest land in northern New England and New York is hunkering down for the winter in New Hampshire's White Mountain National Forest.

The museum, developed by the Northern Forest Center, is called "Ways of the Woods: People and the Land in the Northern Forest." It combines multi-media displays with educational kiosks, artifacts and children's activities to explain the changing relationships between people and the land across northern Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire and New York.

The free exhibit will spend the winter at the White Mountain National Forest's Ranger District office in Gorham.

Over the last several years, it has toured fairs and festivals, reaching more than 130,000 people, including 6,000 school children.
