Bissonette Farm Conservation Project

To the editor: It is time to celebrate and to say thank you to individual donors and the whole town of Hinesburg. The Hinesburg Land Trust, the Trust for Public Land and the Vermont Land Trust invite you to enjoy the coming of spring and celebrate the completion of the LaPlatte Conservation Initiative on Bissonette Farms. On Sunday, June 1, well gather on the property for music, snacks and walks through the woods. Gather with friends and neighbors to test your knowledge of birds and undoubtedly learn some new ones on a bird walk. View the beauty of spring wildflowers and unique geology and other natural features on a guided tour of the property. Dennis Wilmot will entertain us with song and guitar, and there will be delicious food, fresh spring greens and yummy deserts. The successful completion of the project has assured protection of 600 acres of farmland, wetlands, wildlife corridors and beautiful vistas. It also gives Hinesburg residents, friends and families recreational access to 301 acres right in the middle of Hinesburg. The celebration will be at Gilman Road Meadows, June 1, from 3-5 p.m. Look for the tent on Gilman Road. RSVP to Dotty Schnure at 802-482-2503 or e-mail: sarah.erb@tpl.org. Andrea Morgante, Hinesburg
