HHLT's Proposal to the Garrison Union Free School District Board of Education
On May 20, 2015, HHLT made a presentation regarding the conservation of the Garrison School Forest to the GUFS Board of Education at their regular meeting. You can view a map, detailing the proposal area, and an informational document that lays out the details and answers some questions related to the proposal that was prepared independantly by a Garrison School parent, Jill Corson Lake. Any Garrison School District residents wishing for more information on this proposal should feel free to contact the Land Trust. We are happy to answer questions.
