WORK PARTY: Vedder Preserve

December 1, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

This is the event previously scheduled for the May work party. We will clean up chronic party sites, do any needed trail maintenance and continue the removal of invasive plants, mostly privet, that has been the focus of our stewardship work on this preserve for several years, focusing on pulling the small seedlings that have sprouted in the previously cleared areas. Meet at 9:00 am at the pull-off on Pleasant Point Rd. just south of the Amtrak line. Bring work gloves, grub hoes, clippers and loppers. Call Bill Horne (203-488-6146) for more information.

Many of you specifically expressed interest in helping with trail maintenance. The Land Trust’s Trails Committee, chaired by Bud Dannheim and Matt Reed, focuses on blazing and maintaining the numerous trails on BLT properties. Work events are scheduled during the week, generally on Tuesday or Thursday mornings from 9:00 to noon. If you would like to receive information of where the Trail Committee will be working the following Tuesday morning, please contact Bud (Gunther.dannheim@gmail.com) or Matt ( mwreed81@gmail.com) and let them know of your interest.

The work parties offer a chance to get to know some of the BLT properties and to spend a little time with some great people. If you have school age kids, this is a chance for them to pick up some community service credits.
