Miriam Hunt Town Forest TourPosted Mon, Sep 10 at 03:13pm
On Sunday, September 23 the Rindge Conservation Commission will conduct a walking tour of the Miriam Hunt Memorial Forest. This is the fourth in a series of conservation land tours which have been received positively by town residents. Miriam Hunt taught in the East Rindge one-room school house from the 1940’s until that school was discontinued with the opening of the Rindge Memorial School in 1952. Ms. Hunt who died in 1991 was an educator, lover of nature and a humanitarian and her children donated her 29 acres to the Town of Rindge in 1997 for use as a school forest to support the outdoor programs of school children.
This parcel of conservation land is located on Route 119 opposite Cutter Hill Road and Crowcroft Pond. The tour will take hikers along its hiking trails and along a wooded marsh. The tour will be conducted by Fred Rogers and will start at 1:00 pm, last about an hour and will be conducted in rain or shine.
