Come join us for a walk along the trails at Stone Meadow on Sat. Sept. 8 @ 10 am. As part of the 100 Miles in 100 Days challenge, the trails at Stone Meadow will be a featured stop for this program. The gentle trail hike will be lead by Marc Pramuk, chair of Wallingford Conservation, and Kathleen Upton, longtime local resident and outdoor enthusiast. We’ll walk the trails around Stone Meadow and Elfin Lake, enjoying the scenery and a recap of local history as well as sampling the raw honey from the apiary in Stone Meadow. We hope to see you there!
Conservation Commission meets the fourth Monday of each month at Wallingford Town Hall at 6:30 p.m.
Conservation Commissions are advisory bodies that exist in many towns across the state. Broadly, they were established to help communities protect and enhance their natural resources. In 1977, Vermont passed the enabling legislation (24 V.S.A. 4501) to establish municipal conservation commissions. By 1996, 96 Vermont towns had conservation commissions or similar committees. Today, there are over 120 conservation commissions in Vermont.
The Wallingford Conservation Commission members built scenic walking trails at Stone Meadow Park off Waldo Lane and a kayak/canoe launch into Otter Creek off Waldo Lane. They created a kiosk with maps detailing trails and they even planted wildflowers that support a healthy bee population. During the spring of 2017, the commission installed bee colonies that were fenced off and safely located away from visitors. For more news, follow us on our Facebook page by clicking here.
