Join in a Putney Big Tree Quest along the forested edge of the historic Great Meadow along the Connecticut River in Putney on Sunday, October 16 at 2 p.m. An easy walk along the Meadow’s edge will be interspersed with forays into the woods to measure large trees to submit to the Putney Big Tree Quest. Check out the Putney Public Library for more info about the Putney Big Tree Quest. (www.putneylibrary.org)
Leaders Tom Hinckley, Gino Palmeri and Ann Kerrey, Putney Conservation Commission members, will help with tree identification and measuring. They will also give a brief description of the Great Meadow in the early 1700’s when Putney’s first settlers arrived.
Park at the north end of the Meadow (near the Westminster town line, off River Road South) in the large pull-off area on the right (east). Please wait to cross the railroad tracks as a group.
