Volunteer Day at Owens Falls Sanctuary
Saturday, April 30th
Join us for an afternoon of stewardship and restoration activities at Owens Falls Sanctuary. Land Conservancy staff and volunteers will remove invasive plant species and plant native shrubs and trees in a newly installed deer exclosure. Doing so will provide needed biodiversity in a young portion of the forest. We will also plant a white oak tree.
We plan on performing general spring clean up activities such as litter removal as well. Please bring a shovel and gloves if you have them; the Land Conservancy has only a limited number of tools available. The rain date for this event is Sunday, May 1st.
Garlic Mustard Pull at College Lodge Forest
Wednesday, April 27th
Join the Land Conservancy for a morning of stewardship at the magnificent College Lodge in Brocton. We will be pulling garlic mustard and removing other early season invasive plants that are encroaching into the beautiful forest of College Lodge. The Land Conservancy will provide gardening gloves; please come prepared for potentially wet conditions. To prevent the potential spread of invasive species, please make sure your boots and clothing are free of mud before arriving. Parking is available in the gravel lot next to the main Lodge building.
