Trail Map of Montague to Mormon Hollow

E-mail Print

The Massachusetts Cultural Council through our Wendell Cultural Council has commissioned a trail map of the Wendell State Forest complete with mileages, contours, and locations. The goal of this map was to enable hikers and families to have a more accurate and comprehensive view of the many recreational opportunities the Wendell State Forest offers. The official Forest trail map does not include distances nor the many unofficial trails that have been built in the forest, giving pause to many potential users. Hopefully this map will help open up the forest to all who care to wander.

Dog License Reminder

E-mail Print

Reminder to dog owners: A large number of people have failed to license their dogs this year. Not only is licensing good for the town and for your dog, it is also required by State law. Please take the necessary steps to obtain your dog license. In the near future, the Dog Officer will be providing the Selectboard with a list of those who are still not in compliance so that further action can be taken. Thanks for your cooperation in this matter.

As seen in these photographs, a replica of this flag was produced and now hangs proudly in the State House Hall of Flags in Boston, joining flags from cities and towns across the Commonwealth.
