Fanny Mason Forest, Route 12, Walpole
Please join the Walpole Conservation Commission and special guests for a community walk at one of Walpole’s town forests to talk about invasive species, management, and hopefully do some botanizing (identifying plants) too. The Fanny Mason Forest is approximately 286 acres with extensive trail networks including a group of established trails, trails in need of rehabilitation, and new trails laid out but not yet built. Special guests include Alex Barrett, Forestry Division Manager (the Town Forester) and Tom Groves, Woodland Services Division Manager at Long View Forest of Westminster, VT.
PARKING: Please park at the east side pull off from Route 12 where a network of trails emerges.
SAFETY: Masks and distancing will be required at this outdoor event. Long sleeves and pants to protect against ticks and comfortable footwear for trail walking are recommended.
