Friends of Fairlee Forest is kicking off the second century of the Vermont Town Forest Act with the first-ever celebration of our magnificent wild woodlands. Come join us!

For details on the festival, please click the festival tab above. For updates, please like our Friends of the Fairlee Forest facebook page.

The Forest Festival is part of Fairlee’s July 4 weekend celebrations which include a family fair and band concert Sunday evening and the popular Orford-Fairlee Independence Day Parade, BBQ, and fireworks display on Monday.

This site has been created by Friends of Fairlee Forest as a window into our public forest lands and trails. Fairlee boasts over 35 miles of public trails through one of east-central Vermont's largest unfragmented forests. With stunning mountain views, rushing streams, and a network of over 80 acres of pristine wetlands, the forests are a valuable recreational resource as well as ideal habitat for northeastern wildlife. Many of the continent's songbird species migrate thousands of miles each year to nest in these forests. This is a treasure to cherish, preserve, and enjoy.
