The Trails Committee
|In 2007, the Milford Conservation Commission (MCC) established the Trails Committee to manage public use on the town forests and other properties that the Conservation Commission protects according to the Conservation Land Ordinance. Current members are: Brian Hawkins (chairman), Jon Thunberg (vice-chairman/secretary), Chris Costantino, Mike Sebas, Larry Kimball, Carl Olsen, Bill Nelson and Steve Erdody. Chris Costantino is the Conservation Coordinator who works part-time in the MCC office in the Town Hall and is the contact person for the committee at 249-0628.|
The Trails Committee has focused on upgrading the trail systems in town forests. They developed a Trails Manual which was adopted by the Milford Conservation Commission in September of 2008. If you hike in the forests you will notice new blazing and signage, which are explained in the kiosks that have been installed at the trail-heads. You will also see newly routed signs at the entrances.
The Trails Committee has attracted a large number of volunteers. The MCC office maintains a contact list and sends out notices for upcoming projects. Volunteers can reply and choose projects for which they are interested and available.
If you would like more information about the Trails Committee, or if you would like to sign up to be a Trail Volunteer, contact the Conservation Commission office at 249-0628 or email@example.com.
