    Orange Pond Gets Some Conservation

    The Upper Valley Land Trust newsletter reports on Jim Collins and Kristen Laine and their 118-acre conservation easement at Orange Pond. Read about it here.



    Betty Fulton and Scott Sanborn asked if we could have a discussion board. So we set one up. To participate, you have to register on the site. Check it out here.


    Mica Madness!

    Saturday, May 5, is Green-Up Day, when we pick up roadside trash.  Later that morning comes Mica Madness--a tour of one of the largest Orange mica mines with Town Historian Gary Hamel and Dartmouth Geology Prof Leslie Sonder. For more details, click here. The event is organized by the Orange Town Conservation Commission.

    Feel free to print out the poster and put it up where people can see it! (Click on the thumbnail at left.)
