Forest Summit #7 and ENTS Rendezvous, Oct. 13-15, 2011

At HCC, we have the Forum reserved for the dates of October 13th and 14th, 2011. Our goal is to make this the conference for the students. We hope to secure participation from as many area colleges as we can. We would like to see entire classes participate. We will focus on forest science and forest values. We will not be concentrating only on Massachusetts, but will present a broader view of our forests form a scientific perspective.

They bought the Inn for $266,000. Charlotte and Linda, the former owners, will continue to operate it. We are so thankful.
