Volunteers Needed 10/30

Tree Planting:

We will be planting trees at Billings Farm on Sunday October 30th, starting at 10am.  We will meet at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) parking lot in Quechee, VT between 9:30 and 9:45am, at which time we will be car-pooling over to the Billings Farm site.  This project is repairing the buffer that we planted last year.  Some of the trees took an awful beating from Irene.  Please come out and help!!!  Bring boots, gloves, appropriate clothing, water, snack and a shovel (if you have one) to help us get these trees in the ground.

Also on the 30th:
After the tree planting we will head over to Hartland and Lull’s Brook for some afternoon fun.  The tree planting we did there is looking good and we have a new sign that explains the project for visitors.  We will install the sign near the Hartland Library.  Come join us, the Hartland Garden Club and others from 2 – 4pm at the Hartland Library.
Michael Caduto, Local Author, Performer and Naturalist in a presentation of his new children’s book, Riparia’s River, and a presentation about riparian buffers.  He will be joined by his wife, Marie Caduto, Watershed Coordinator for Vermont’s Department of Environmental Conservation, who will lead an on-stream discussion about the benefits of stream bank restoration and riparian buffers.

Hartland Opportunity: Lull’s Brook

05/13/09. 7:00pm. The Hartland Conservation Commission is holding a regular meeting of special interest to TUers in our Chapter. Ken Cox will be presenting data collected on Lull’s Brook in Hartland, a direct tributary of the Connecticut, and potential future focus for a Chapter project. This is the Hartland Conservation Commission’s regular meeting scheduled for the second Wednesday of May, the 13th, at 7PM in the basement of Damon Hall. Ken will be presenting at the beginning of this meeting. It should prove to be interesting, thought provoking, and hopefully will inspire some discussion about conservation projects to help the brook and its fishery. The meeting will extend with their regular business meeting beyond Ken’s presentation. See you there!
