Cady Hill Forest Conservation Project | Stowe VT Land Trust Makes Final Push

Here we go people, we've been blogging, tweeting and reporting on the progress of the Cady Hill Forest Conservation Project being conducted by the Stowe Land Trust.  Let's make the final few days of April count.  If we can raise $100K then the Stafford Family Foundation will donate $25K!

Also the Stowe Mountain Bike Club has signed on to develop and maintain the Mt. bike trails within the forest.  Check it out here.

Here's an update on the Cady Hill Forest Project.

 

Sunset in Stowe, VT

Welcome to my new series, Sunsets Throughout the Seasons in Stowe Vermont.

I hope to bring you different sunsets from different times of year and from different locations in Stowe. We have an amazing back drop for most of our sunset, that being Mt. Mansfield and Stowe Mt. Resort.

Help Support Stowe Land Trust's Next Venture

Cady Hill Forest Update!!!

$100,000 Challenge Announced for Cady Hill Forest

The community is being challenged to raise $100,000 in the month of April, in order to claim a generous $25,000 gift for Cady Hill Forest from the Stafford Family Foundation.

The land trust, which has raised nearly $1.2 million toward the $1.56 million project, is urging the community to pitch in and get the job done.

For everyone who has been thinking about giving to the project, we urge you to donate before April 30th so we can claim this gift!

Stowe Land Trust works hard to preserve the land in and around Stowe.  This is one of the many reasons Stowe remains pure and natural looking and fantastic.  Their new project will help to conserve the Cady Hill Forest for generations to come.  What the result will be is 320 acres of town forest preserved and put into use with 11 miles of multi-use trails for hiking, biking, walking the dog, snowshoeing and more.  All of this will be a short walk from the village of Stowe.  This will add to the many properties that the Stowe Land Trust has preserved and put to community use over the years like Wiessner & Kirchner Woods, H. D. Burnham Farm and Mill Trail Property.

In order to get there the Stowe Land Trust needs to raise the final $450,000 by May 30, 2012.  Help Stowe Land Trust reach this goal by donating to help preserve this beautiful land.
