Building the Future of Burleigh Mountain

Greetings folks! We are starting an exciting new chapter in the future of Burleigh Mountain, New Hampton School's Wilderness Campus, and I wanted to invite you to be a part of it!

We are starting the process of developing a Forestry Management Plan for Burleigh that will include recreation, education, selective harvesting, conservation, habitat creation and local outreach. As you know Burleigh Mountain already is a place where students, faculty and staff of NHS do great work and we're looking forward to taking this facility and the work we do there to the next level.

To kick things off I'm inviting you to a brainstorming session and snowshoe hike on Tuesday February 17th at 1:30pm on Burleigh!

  • We'll meet on the mountain but let me know if you need a ride from the school or would like to carpool up to save gas and parking spots.
  • Dogs, friends, children, neighbors, relatives, significant others et al are all welcome
  • Bring snowshoes if you have them, sturdy boots if you don't, dress in layers and bring a water bottle (we'll have some snackies and get a fire going if we're chilly)
Leave a comment on this post if you can make it - we'd love to see you there!
