Did you know there are 1300 acres of protected land just outside of downtown Hanover? Known as the 'Trescott lands', this gem was the site of the woodland walk over the weekend (see posting below) through special permission from the Town of Hanover. It was an incredible trek, sponsored by the Hanover Conservancy, with Alcott Smith leading the way. We saw miles of gorgeous woodlands, spectacular views and learned so many interesting things about the animals and plants. There was even an old road from the 1800's where you could see some of the old cellar holes. It was a poignant moment to reflect on the tiny blip each of our lives is on the timeline of this beautiful area.
This past weekend's hike was just one of many of the activities the Hanover Conservancy hosts. The tiny membership fee of $35 and individual donations are all that supports the huge amount of work they have done to help preserve the natural beauty we all enjoy. You can read about the many natural areas they have preserved for public use here:
Such a huge benefit to all of us living here now and future generations. Next time you are driving through the Upper Valley and see a significant natural area you may be enjoying that unspoiled view thanks to the hard work of The Hanover Conservancy!
