Community Forest

Community Forest Stewardship Committee (CFSC)
The mission of the Community Forest Stewardship Committee (CFSC) is to plan for and steward the Huntington Community Forest, a 245 parcel of land adjacent to Brewster Peirce Memorial School in Huntington Center. This committee works with Huntington community members and leaders, County Forester Ethan Tapper, the Vermont Land Trust, and relevant experts in their fields to develop a set of guiding principles, goals, and objectives and to develop a Community Forest Stewardship Plan. The CFSC will function as the primary stewardship oversight body of the Community Forest, answering to the Selectboard, to conduct stewardship activities and updates to the Stewardship plan as necessary or required.
