The Trust for Public Land has teamed up with the Town of Huntington, Vermont and the Vermont Land Trust to create the new Huntington Community Forest. Immediately adjacent to the Brewster-Pierce Memorial School, the 245-acre property provides the school with an outdoor classroom where kids can learn about the natural world every day, all year long – no permission slip required.
The land’s rich and diverse habitat is home to black bear, fisher, otter, and bobcat. A trail network offers exceptional accessibility for town residents and visitors to run, hike, snowshoe, and cross-country ski. Additionally, protection of the property’s riparian areas, wetlands, river corridor, and headwater streams will enhance flood resiliency in the Huntington River Watershed and protect the drinking water source for the school. Please join us in saving this recreational and ecological treasure from fragmentation and development – and open up a world of wonder to the students at Brewster-Pierce Memorial School.
