Virginia Stranahan Memorial Forest

With 620 acres the Virginia Stranahan Memorial Forest offers a little bit for everyone including diverse recreation opportunities, outdoor education, maple sugaring, ecologically sensitive areas, and wildlife habitat. Requests for additional trails and uses have begun to create user conflicts on trails and a growing sense that there needs to be an overarching plan based on input from the community to guide decisions. Once they have the balance question answered, Marshfield is interested in tackling the specifics of trails planning and design.
