The Raymond Bemis Community Forest is located between Brookline Road and Valley Cemetery Road in Athens, Vermont. This ~36-acre parcel will have about a mile of walking trails that wind through a diverse landscape, featuring a long stretch of the Bull Creek, glacial eskers, rock ledges, and hemlock forests. The Community Forest is anticipated to open to the public in 2023 and will be owned and managed by Bull Creek Common Lands, Inc. Please contact a board member to tour the land and learn more about the project.
