We are thrilled to announce that the 250-acre Mink Brook Community Forest (formerly owned by the Leavitt family) off Greensboro Road is now permanently protected and open to the public! An entire generation of conservationists worked to make this project happen: read the full press release here.
This couldn’t have happened without The Town of Hanover and the Trust for Public Lands working in tandem with generous local donors- thank you all! The Mink Brook Community Forest belongs to the Town of Hanover and will be managed for sustainable forestry, low-impact recreation and biodiversity.
The land is now open to the public. Keep an eye out for guided hikes to the property, to be announced soon!
