Hanover Conservancy President Nancy Collier and Executive Director Adair Mulligan talked about trails, getting outdoors, and our terrific volunteers with Judy McKeown recently on Judy’s “Spirit of the Valley” on CATV.
Name That Trail
The votes are in – GREENSBORO HIGHLANDS TRAIL – new at Greensboro Ridge Natural Area! For a trail map and more, visit our page on this 113-acre property.
Our new, more informative trailhead signs are now going up. Look for them at Mink Brook, Slade Brook, and Greensboro Ridge.
Try our new Greensboro Ridge trail!
Our new trail at the Greensboro Ridge Natural Area is ready for visitors, thanks to last week’s help from Hypertherm volunteers and our hardy, rain-drenched crew on Upper Valley Trails Day. Blazing will be completed soon, but the half-mile path, which links the Silent Brook Trail with Oli’s Eagle Trail, is now easy to follow. Try it out!
Tunis Brook Mill Lot
On Earth Day, a hardy group of 10 volunteers cleared much of the path to our gem in northeastern Hanover: the Tunis Brook Mill Lot. Find photos and upcoming chances to lend a hand here. Join us on Sunday, April 29 from 1-3 pm to finish the job and visit this special place.
Lend a Hand on Earth Day!
Join the action on Sunday afternoon, April 22
- Tunis Brook Mill Lot, 1-4pm. Calling all those with clippers, loppers or chainsaws & moxie to clear the overgrown path to this gem in NE Hanover, site of 18th c. mill. Refreshments.
- King Bird Sanctuary, 1-3pm. We’ll be tidying up the new wildlife plantings and pruning back competitors.
Trails Softening ~ Bears Out Soon!
This week’s unusually warm temperatures mean muddy trails. It’s best to stay off the trails until they dry out and harden up. An exception is the Quinn Trail at Mink Brook Nature Preserve.
Time to bring in your bird feeders! State biologists expect the bears weren’t fooled by this mild winter any more than we were, and ask that you bring in your bird feeders now, and don’t wait until April 1.
