Description: Farmington, CT, September 15, 2014: Join us for the Farmington Land Trust’s final Stroll on the Land this season, on Sunday, October 5th. We will be hiking through the Farmington Memorial Town Forest, led by Eagle Scout Will Sanford. Will knows the terrain better than most. Will, 17, a Dean’s List student at Avon Old Farms School, has been a member of Boy Scout Troop 68 for the past 8 years. In 2012 Will began planning his Eagle Scout Service Project. One of his goals was to raise awareness and use of the town forest. He led a group of volunteers in the construction of two kiosks at the Plainville Avenue and Red Oak Hill entrances to the forest. He rerouted a trail away from residential areas and reblazed three major trials through the forest. He also created a new trail map which can be found on the kiosks. The project was completed on June 1, 2014.The Farmington Memorial Town Forest, established in 1926 to honor the men and women who served in World War 1, consists of 266 acres. The land is open to the public for passive recreation such as hiking and bird watching.
We will meet at Town Memorial Forest, Plainville Avenue, entrance Located across from and between Snowberry Land and Autumn Way Developments on RT 177. This event is free and open to the public.
