Otter Pond in late March

If you are feeling cooped up indoors, or need a new outdoor space to explore, try out Gill's Blake Town Forest located at 76 Hoe Shop Road. Our 162 acres of beautiful forested land includes hills and eskers, a magnificent pond and a river, and several miles of gentle, well-marked trails. Check it out!

Bonus feature - please enjoy this poem by Wendell Berry, shared by Amy Gordon.

When despair grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
