Help clear land trust trails

Jan 11, 2021

Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust is inviting nature lovers and other members of the public to mask up and volunteer at a series of work parties to help maintain the trails on several DNRT properties in town.

Volunteers will help pick up trash, tackle invasive plants, and burn brush at the properties. Participants are encouraged to wear closed-toe shoes and long pants.

Tools will be provided at every event, all of which begin at 9 a.m., but the land trust recommends bringing your own tools if you have them.

A work party will be helping burn some brush and removing invasive plants from the Smith Neck Farm Reserve off Smith Neck Road  on Jan. 13.

There will also be work parties on Jan. 21 at the Frank Knowles-Little River Reserve on 701 Potomska Road, Destruction Brook Woods on Jan. 26, and trash pickup and trail clearing at the Knowles-Padanaram Reserve on Smith Neck Road on Jan. 28.

February will also see a few work parties. On Feb. 10, volunteers can help burn brush at the Wernick Farm Reserve, lay down bog boards at the Dike Creek Reserve on Feb. 16 and the removal of invasive plants at Smith Farm on Feb. 26.
