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.


  1. Support the management of the Lincoln Community Forest cooperatively as a community asset while protecting the Marengo River.
  2. Support the management of the Lincoln Community Forest through economically and ecologically sustainable forest management practices;
  3. Develop amenities and programs that will support a wide range of nature-based recreational and educational opportunities;
  4. 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.
