ACT volunteers Linda Moore, Dee McKown, and Bill & Carol Vales will lead this winter hike to Cooley-Jericho’s ledges, where participants will search for moose tracks and enjoy beautiful views of the White Mountains.
The Cooley-Jericho Community Forest features 840 acres of land conserved by ACT in cooperation with the towns of Sugar Hill, Easton, Franconia, and Landaff. Trails on the property are open year-round for enjoyment by the public.
The hike will be at a slow to moderate pace with stops to observe and enjoy nature. Participants should dress in layers and bring snowshoes, water, and snacks. Hikers should be prepared for moderate elevation gain with some steep sections.
This program is free and open to the public, with a suggested $5 donation to support ACT’s land conservation efforts. Advanced registration is required; registration closes at 12 noon on Friday, February 24. Details and registration information are available at http://www.aconservationtrust.org/education-events or by calling (603) 823-7777.
