Shelton’s Town Trails
I’ve written introductions for many land trusts and town trail compendiums for this site. They don’t really serve as anything other than tables of contents, and the stuff I write on these pages is rarely read by anyone.
But Shelton’s Conservation Commission strikes me as different for a few reasons. They are a volunteer town commission and not a land trust, but they sure do operate like one. They (the town) own and manage almost all of the non state land in Shelton.
But moreover, they have Teresa Gallagher. She and I have been reading each other’s trail/nature/hike writings for a decade now. She’s given me tips about trails near and dear to her, and I always enjoyed her trail blogs in the past. Teresa seems to write all the stuff on the Conservation Commission’s site now and of course “gets out there” to help maintain the town’s trail system.
Without people like Teresa, the world would be a far worse place. So I very much look forward to hiking her and her friends’ trails in Shelton!
