The Dorset Select Board will hold a public hearing on Nov. 19, starting at 7:30 p.m. on the Owl's Head Town Forest project. Currently, the town owns a 40 acre parcel on the top of Owl's Head. The Dorset Conservation Commission hopes to apply for a federal grant that would allow the town to purchase an additional 200 acres to expand the town forest.
