FOW WOODLAND TRAIL

A definite highlight at the Windsor Grown festival! Friends of Windsor's Woodland Trail was simply magical. From start to finish, it was designed and created by Windsor volunteers—from the hand-carved tree dragons and rustic sapling fort (complete with fire pit and s'mores!) to the mesmerizing path through a rhododendron patch, and so much more.

HISTORICAL SITE SIGNS

In collaboration with the Windsor Historical Commission, we installed twenty-four coordinated signs throughout town marking historically significant sites in locations where recognizable structures no longer exist. The signs offer us a tangible connection to Windsor’s past. Click on the image for a list of the sites and our online map.
