Note: In Summer 2016, the Town Forest Committee merged with the Conservation Commission.
The F.X. Shea Town Forest is a 100 acre wooded parcel that was generously donated to the town by Corinth resident, Sue Shea. It is located at the end of Wilson Road outside of Cookeville. The Town Forest Committee is active in taking care of the trails and arranging events that occur in the forest year round. Members serve 3-year terms in their appointed positions.
MISSION STATEMENT: The Corinth Town Forest Committee is responsible for overseeing both the everyday stewardship and long term vision for the F.X. Shea Town Forest in Corinth, Vermont. The committee’s stewardship responsibilities include: holding regular meetings to discuss matters relevant to the Town Forest, plan and execute events in the Town Forest that are open to the public, and plan the long term vision and management of the property. The primary purpose of the F.X. Shea Town Forest is to offer residents of Corinth and surrounding communities opportunities for recreation and place-based environmental education, serve as an example of sustainable forestry and to provide a place where one can experience quietude and natural beauty. The Town Forest is also managed so that ecological functions remain intact. The Committee manages the Town Forest to achieve these goals.
