HHLT's Proposal to the Garrison Union Free School District Board of Education

On May 20, 2015, HHLT made a presentation regarding the conservation of the Garrison School Forest to the GUFS Board of Education at their regular meeting. While about two dozen residents attended the meeting, several people have expressed interest in seeing the slides from the presentation. They are available here, along with a map, and an informational document that lays out the details and answers some questions related to the proposal that was prepared independantly by a Garrison School parent, Jill Corson Lake, who is interested in the project. Any Garrison School District residents wishing for more information on this proposal should feel free to contact the Land Trust. We are happy to answer questions.
