Prioritizing, Protecting, and Restoring Riparian Buffers in Merrimack River Watershed Communities
Join us, Saturday May 19th, 2018 for a field trip lead by Alex Krofta, formerly a Restoration Scientist with Merrimack River Watershed Council, and currently a Stewardship Biologist with Mass Wildlife.
Please join us in the field to get a firsthand look at two riparian buffer restoration sites planted on public land by community volunteers. One is at Memorial Field in Pembroke, and the other is at City of Concord conservation land on West Portsmouth Street. There may also be an opportunity to visit a future restoration site at NHTI and review the planting plan. We will discuss “lessons learned” from project implementation, including selecting sites, working with volunteers, building partnerships with community stakeholders, and more.
Feel free to join us for one or both site visits, and maybe bring a lunch for afterwards so we can eat and catch up with our restoration colleagues.
