We just heard from one of our on-line friends that the Brewster Conservation Commission and the Brewster Sportsman’s Committee have a proposal in the works to legalize hunting in the Punkhorn Parklands. Hunting hasn’t been permitted since the conservation area was created in the 80’s and has made the Parklands a special place for outdoor recreation, wildlife and naturalist wanderings. The next public hearing for the committees will be on 6 October at 7:00pm at the Brewster Town Hall. We hope you’ll stop by or contact the Conservation Commission directly to let them know what increased hunting will do to the Punkhorn.
