Description

Frog Hollow Farm was given to the WLT in December of 2003.  It is the gift of John L. “Jack” Dunham.  Mr. Dunham had owned the property for over 50 years and wanted to be sure that the land that he loved was protected permanently.  He surveyed out a 5 acre lot that includes his house, and transferred the remaining 63 acres to the WLT.  Because of Mr. Dunham’s generosity, local residents will have the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful land forever.

Animal life seen at FHF include waterfowl, blue herons, deer, coyotes, rabbits, foxes.  The woodlands are a mixture of hardwood and softwood, with an occasional apple tree found in the woods.  Some trees were harvested in 2005;  the WLT is utilizing the forestry roads to develop a trail network.

Creative Trails, a nonprofit group that helps mentally disabled adults, has been helping to clear the trails on the property.  This partnership has been beneficial for both groups.
