Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Shawn Harrington of the Manchester Historical Society to talk about the history of the Equinox Preserve. Mount Equinox (3,816 feet) is part of the northernmost sweep of the Taconic Mountains and is considered one of the most important natural areas in the state. Part of the largest rich northern hardwood forest in New England, over 900 acres is protected and under the management of Equinox Preservation Trust. Join us as the Manchester Historical Society and Equinox Preservation Trust explore its history and its importance in protecting biodiversity. Rich Heilemann, representing EPT, will join Shawn Harrington in this presentation. There will be a hike to Equinox Pond following the talk.
