We are joining forces with the Stewardship Network of New England to battle invasive species at the Sewall Woods Conservation Area in Wolfeboro on Saturday, October 7th from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm.
This beautiful piece of nature nestled within the bustling Wolfeboro community provides recreation of all kinds including running trails, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and walking. One area in particular has slowly been taken over by several varieties of invasive species including multiflora rose, bittersweet, and Japanese barberry, however, new species such as Japanese knotweed and garlic mustard have also started to sprout up.
We have developed a long-term management plan to address the most highly effected areas. Working with partners such as Pathways of Wolfeboro and the Wolfeboro XC Ski Association, we plan to reclaim an old meadow which is full of native apple trees but we need your help to keep this area contained.
Please come prepared to get dirty! Wear sturdy shoes/boots and clothes and bring work gloves and plenty of water. We will provide light refreshments and the tools needed for the day. If you are interested helping please contact Erin Mastine at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Stewardship Network’s website here to register.
