How should the Hartford Town Forest be used? A workshop is being held on January 23 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Hartford Town Hall to collect opinions and ideas. A consulting group will facilitate the open house format. They will have maps/displays and will be asking folks questions about what they would like to see in the Town Forest.
The 432-acre parcel is a popular mountain biking destination. In recent year unauthorized trail-building has become a problem.
Hartford was selected as one of 10 communities in Vermont to receive a grant from The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry Program. This grant program assists Vermont communities interested in addressing issues and opportunities in the use and stewardship of their town forest, town forest recreation, and stewardship plans.
