A group of North Country towns working with the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust has purchased 844 acres to create the Cooley-Jericho Community Forest in Easton.
The group – which includes Easton, Franconia, Landaff and Sugar Hill - has been working to buy the land, which is adjacent to The White Mountain National Forest.
A group of North Country residents is much closer to creating a community forest alongside the White Mountain National Forest.
Now they’re beginning to think about what kind of playground it should be.
For years people in the western part of the White Mountains –have admired an 840-acre tract of privately owned land.
It is located in Easton, which abuts the better-known towns of Sugar Hill and Franconia.
From its ridgeline there are fabulous views of the nearby White Mountain National Forest.
