Bird experts tell the story behind Lye Brook

Tuesday, March 19, 7 p.m.—RUTLAND—On Tuesday, March 19, Rutland County Audubon Society member Lee Allen talks about wilderness in Vermont following the Eastern Wilderness Act of 1975, in particular the Lye Brook Wilderness. Hear Allen at 7 p.m. at Grace Congregational Church, in Fellowship Hall.

One hundred years ago the Lye Brook area hosted numerous logging camps, charcoaling operations, and the Rich Lumber Company’s Lye Brook railroad. Although remains of these past activities are still visible, Lye Brook is now an area of outstanding beauty providing opportunities for primitive back-county recreation, wildlife observation, exploration and quiet contemplation.

The event is free and open to the public. Grace Congregational Church is located at 8 Court St. Rutland.
