Please join us on Saturday, November 4th at 11:00am to celebrate the opening of our new trail crossing at the Mink Brook Nature Preserve. We’ll gather at the Norman Overlook to hear about the challenging project of bringing a 5 ton log from Oak Hill to the Preserve and transforming it into a safe passage across Hanover’s largest stream in one of our community’s most beloved protected natural spaces.
Over 200 volunteer hours went into this ambitious project, led by Hugh Mellert, Hanover Conservancy board member emeritus. Essential partners include Chippers, Liberty Utilities, Hypertherm’s HOPE Foundation, Dartmouth College, Upper Valley Forestry, Friends of Oak Hill, and Royal Trail Works.
Parking for the event is at Tenney Field off Brook Road, just past the gate to the Preserve. Plan on 3-4 minutes’ walk in on the Quinn Trail to reach the Norman Overlook with its view of the new crossing. MORE
