Green Mountain Forestry & Fire Tower Hike. Saturday, July 16, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Join GMCG and the Forest Society for a guided hike of Green Mountain to the Forest Society High Watch Forest Reservation and fire tower and some great views of the Ossipee Watershed. The hike will be led by Field Forester, Steve Junkin, and Senior Director of Education, Dave Anderson, of the Forest Society. We will hike via the Libby Road Trail, with a side trip to visit the area of a 2018 harvest which created 40 acres of early successional openings to learn about why these were createdand observe the regeneration at the site. Next, we will head to the summit for lunch and views. Be prepared for a 3-mile round-trip hike with some steep terrain. Please bring a lunch and water, and pre-register for the hike by contacting education@gmcg.org as space is limited.
