Director of Sandy River Land Trust,High Peaks Alliance and MATLT,& co-owner of Organicblueberry.com
As part of the conservation and multi-use recreation strategy for Franklin County's High Peaks, this idea makes a lot of sense as a complement to ongoing activities. The net effect will be to build the High Peaks brand as a nature tourism destination that can pave the way to protecting the seed corn of this rural area's little known jewels and wild life.
The Madrid Orbeton/Linkletter Working Forest, Public Access Conservation Easement was brought about by the recognition of a large common interest that many share so that cooperation among non-traditional partners could accomplish this. In this case motorized and non motorized groups supported this High Peaks Alliance effort which helps the High Peaks Brand and our prospects for Nature Tourism and a Sustainable Economy in Franklin County.
