Next forest project eyed in southern Vt. towns

Posted: Updated:

BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Green Mountain National Forest is expected to focus its next forest management project in southern Bennington County.

Melissa Reichert, project team leader for the Green Mountain National Forest, says public meetings are expected to be held early in October in Pownal, Stamford and Readsboro.

The meetings allow the public to offer suggestions or comments and concerns on actions proposed by forest staff members. Forest officials say a scoping report will be released to the public, after the input from the public meetings and other investigations, giving people a chance to make written comments and suggestions.

The Rutland Herald reports the next forest management project is expected to focus on lands in Woodford, Stamford, Readsboro, Pownal and parts of Bennington.
