Fremont Celebrates New Town Forest Property

FREMONT —Fremont residents, along with folks from Kingston and Brentwood, gathered to officially celebrate the Town's purchase of an additional 76 acres from the Smith brothers. Mother Nature did her part and Sat., October 13 was a glorious, sunny, and crisp New Hampshire fall day. The Fremont Conservation Commission provided coffee and donuts to insure everyone was well nourished before the group ventured out for a tour of the new property.

Special guests included Mike Speltz, Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, and Digit Taylor, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP). Ms. Taylor presented Fremont with a check that will be used to partially fund the purchase. Besides LCHIP, other key partners include NH State Conservation Committee's License Plate Program (Moose Plate Program), the William P. Wharton Trust, the Davis Conservation Foundation, the Cricket Foundation, and the Fields Pond Foundation. The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests holds the conservation easement on this parcel as it does with Glen Oakes.

Dennis Howland, Chairman Fremont Open Space Committee, then led the group on a 2 1/4 mile hike so everyone could get a firsthand look at this valuable addition to the Town’s conservation lands. Mike Speltz provided a wealth of information about the forest that was seen along the hike. Bill Knee, Chairman of the Fremont Conservation Commission and a biologist, also provided insight into the sights and sounds along with a joke or two! Of particular note were an approximately 150-year-old pine tree and a series of glacial erratics.   

More information about the Glen Oakes town Forest, the new Smith property and Fremont's other Town Forest, Oak Ridge can all be found on the Town’s Website;
