Site Walk of the Lowell Farm property and the Hadlock Community Forest property.
The Council will conduct a site walk commencing at 1:00 pm at the Highland Lake boat launch parking area, located off the Mast Road. The site walk is open to the public, however public comment will not be taken.
For the first part of the site walk, the Council will review conditions at Lowell Farm, a forest that has been managed for many years in a manner similar to that proposed for the Hadlock Forest. The Council will then proceed to Hadlock Community Forest to review conditions there.
