WELCOME TO THE FRIENDS OF LINCOLN COMMUNITY FOREST (FCLF)
Our mission is to facilitate the conservation and enjoyment of the Lincoln Community Forest.
We envision the Lincoln Community Forest and Marengo River within as a community asset that is rigorously managed throughout to ensure a healthy, sustainable and scenic forest, to protect its natural and historic character, that provides in the South Unit a small network of primitive trails where the visitor general public can enjoy nature-based recreation and education, and that preserves the North Unit in a largely undeveloped state.
- Support the management of the Lincoln Community Forest cooperatively as a community asset while protecting the Marengo River.
- Support the management of the Lincoln Community Forest through economically and ecologically sustainable forest management practices;
- Develop amenities and programs that will support a wide range of nature-based recreational and educational opportunities;
- Work in partnership with agencies and organizations who support our goals.
The Lincoln Community Forest is open to the public free of charge for non-motorized, nature based activities like hunting, fishing, hiking and snowshoeing, trapping, and cross-country skiing. Other allowable activities include mushrooming and berry-picking, bird-watching, canoe and kayak access to river, swimming or wading.
