Dedication Ceremony at the Nathaniel & Ina Thurber Memorial Forest
Join us in Unity, NH on Sunday, May 23, 2010 at 2:30pm!
The Upper Valley Land Trust, the Town of Unity, and Laura & Walter Ryan and family welcome the community to join us as we celebrate and dedicate the recently conserved Nathaniel & Ina Thurber Memorial Forest in Unity, NH. The Upper Valley Land Trust holds a conservation easement on the property that was recently gifted to the town by the Ryans in honor of Lauraâ€™s parents. The Conservation Commission plans to maintain recreational trails that traverse the property for the publicâ€™s enjoyment and will be developing a forest management plan to guide future forestry activities. Please join us and see what a great resource this is! For more information about the conservation of this forest, please see our previous post: http://theuppervalleylandtrust.blogspot.com/2010/01/town-of-unity-celebrates-gift-of.html
Join us at 2:30pm at the parking area and trailhead off Lear Hill Road. We will take a leisurely walk to the hilltop to enjoy the beautiful views. Following the hike, the Ryans will host a reception at their home in Newport to celebrate this special place.
