Jim Innes is a District Ranger for the Forest Service. He’s helping to organize a series of forums in the Mt. Washington Valley to give residents a sense of what’s happening on their public lands and how they can get involved. Innes says, “I speak with the public a lot. In those discussions, and listening to others that I work with, it became apparent that the public really doesn’t have a good idea of what’s going on on their public lands. And I don’t mean just the Forest Service but I mean all the conservancy land here. Upper Saco Valley Land Trust, Chocorua Lake Conservancy, State land, TNC- the Nature Conservancy, so I thought it would be good for us to tell that story.” The first meeting in a series of meetings being called Sense of Place will be tomorrow (2/5/20) at Tuckerman Brewing Company from 6 to 7:30 in the evening.
