Community Connectedness to Our Town Forest
October 6, 6:30
Bradford Public Library
town-forestBeginning in 1994, this presentation traces the history of community efforts to grow, preserve and maintain the Wrights MT/Devil’s Den Town Forest. It will feature various community groups and individuals – school groups, non-profits, businesses, our local national guard unit and caring individuals and neighboring landowners – who have helped in many ways.
From fund-raising events to trail building and maintenance, you’ll see evidence of social capital at its finest. People and groups of all ages in Bradford have put their hearts, hands (and sweat) into making our Town Forest a place for all to enjoy.
Ecological values, Wildlife Values, Educational Values, Recreational Values, and Physical and Mental Health Values of this beautiful landscape are all brought together in this 75 minute presentation.
Discussion, comments and questions are encouraged.

Thirty-Eight: 

    The Hurricane that Transformed New England

The author will show images of the 1938 hurricane and do a reading from his new book. In the 1938 hurricane, New England’s most devastating weather event, Stephen’s own forest in Corinth was blown down, a fate shared by Harvard Forest and by 30,000 families. His new book, Thirty-Eight, tells the story of how the people and forests recovered from this cataclysmic event. As with much of his work, Thirty-Eight attempts to shed further light on the age-old theme of man’s place in nature.
