Trails in Minot Forest named

May 11, 2022

Three trails in Minot Forest have been named after Wareham residents who dedicated their time to conservation efforts.

At the May 10 Select Board meeting, Chair Judith Whiteside reported that the Minot Forest Committee had voted on the names and ordered signs. 

The trails are named after:

Marjorie Teitelbaum: A Wareham High graduate, Teitelbaum went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in botany and a master’s in education. Whiteside described her as a longterm advocate for conservation issues who served on the Minot Forest, Open Space and Community Preservation Committees.

Donald Hall: Also a Wareham High graduate, Hall went to Boston University and earned a master’s degree in education from the University of New Mexico. He taught Spanish and social studies and served as a longtime member of the Conservation Commission and Open Space Committee.

Anne Campbell: A member of the Open Space Committee, Campbell helped film Town Meetings before WCTV was formed. She also helped organize candidates’ nights and served with the Onset Bay Association, the Onset Protective League and the Spinney Memorial Library.  

The trails throughout the forest are being cleaned up, and new trails are being added. There’s a dedicated parking area for the conservation land located off Indian Neck Road.
