2019 Conservation Challenge Update

Conservation Challenge is over 1,500 hours! Thanks to the efforts of St. Williams in a trail corridor clearing project, the Conservation Challenge is now over 1,500 hours. Not only did St. Williams add hours to the challenge, but they finished the new trail corridor for our Blue Triangle Trail. This trail will be key this winter as it will be used as a ski trail in our winter programming. Deerfield schools also added even more hours to the Conservation Challenge on Halloween. You can see the Conservation Challenge in action by viewing our Conservation Story Map. Take a minute to check it out:
