Hanover Conservancy and Town of Hanover volunteers lent a hand to help our neighbors, Pine Park Association, install a new kiosk at the entrance to Pine Park. We had loads of fun using the electric post-hole digger!

The Conservancy is proud to announce that Hugh Mellert has been named as an Emeritus Member of its Board of Directors. Hugh served on the Board from 1998-2018. An energetic and dedicated community volunteer, Hugh leads outdoor trips, advises on stewardship of our natural areas, and, most recently, stepped up to lead the complex effort to replace the trail bridge at the Mink Brook Nature Preserve. Many have participated in his annual winter moonlight snowshoe tour at Slade Brook, and enjoyed a trail Hugh has helped manage or crossed a bridge he built. He is a valued voice on our Community Engagement, Lands, and Land Stewardship Committees. Hugh is also vice-chair of the Hanover Conservation Commission and chair of its Trails Committee.
Much is afoot at Hanover’s oldest conservation area, and trail builders are asking for eager feet to help “break in” some new trails. In the park’s interior, volunteers are clearing two east-west connector trails between the River Trail and the Cathedral Trail, where foot traffic would help harden the treadway. So, if you are in Pine Park, check out these new connectors and help establish them as part of the trail network.
Work has also started (photo) on the accessibility trail from the former clubhouse. Avoid this trail until it’s ready but enjoy seeing the progress.
