Last Sunday eight of us walked the outer loop of the Cossingham Road Farm trails. It was a gem of a day; summer warm but not hot with just enough breeze to keep us insect free. Blackberries were blossoming here and there and some of the summer wildflowers, such as the blue eyed grass, made several appearances. The woods were quiet, beautiful and peaceful; our many conversations the only sounds. The last part of the trail was an easy downhill along a pasture with a wonderful view of Moose, Smarts, Cube and Moosilauke Mountains in front of us. As one of us said along the way Ē I havenít hiked with a group in a long time. Itís nice.Ē Sharing seems to add to the pleasure. Join us some Sunday.

Celebrating a Communityís Forest in Corinth

 

New energy is growing out of a generous gift of land from Sue Shea to the Town of Corinth, honoring her late husband Frank. The new F.X. Shea Town Forest, as the 94 acre property will be known, truly is a community resource. As Val Stori, the Town Forestís new coordinator, said to the nearly 50 people at the June 12, 2011 dedication ceremony, ďthis is your forest!Ē The Corinth Conservation Commission and newly-formed Town Forest Committee will work with Stori to plan events, work on day to day management, and promote the forest as an educational resource.
