Establishing a new partnership with the Randolph Community Forest
We are pleased to announce that we are in the initial phase of discussion that will result in a new partnership with the Randolph Community Forest. The Forest is a protected 10'000+ acre tract of unspoiled land that includes an important section of the Israel River headwaters in the Stag Hollow region of Jefferson. The Randolph Forest Commission envisions a working forest similar in structure to the Second College Grant in the Dead Diamond Watershed. We will be going over previous studies and data to form a plan of action to begin this year. Work this summer will include temperature and flow monitoring, fish surveys and culvert assessments. This will lead to applying for grants to complete necessary culvert replacements and restoration work in the near future.
