Trail Stewardship Day

  • Clark Reserve 515 Fowlers Mill Rd Tamworth, NH, 03886 United States (map)

Have you seen the Valley of the Boulders? The other large glacial erratics on the trails of the Chocorua Lake Conservancy’s Clark Reserve?

On Wednesday, October 9, from 9AM-12PM, join CLC Stewardship Director Lynne Flaccus for some trail work on the upper portion of the Clark Reserve. We’ll take in these phenomena of our local landscape we clear growth along the trail and make sure it is ready for a winter of snowshoeing and the spring melt.

We’ll meet at the trailhead on Chocorua Lake Road; the “old mail road” (not to be confused with the town-maintained Old Mail Rd.) just east of where Philbrick Neighborhood Road meets Chocorua Lake Road. Along the way we’ll see boulders dropped by glaciers thousands of years ago, and rock piles created by long-ago farmers as we make our way up to the “Hunters’ Blind.” Meet at 9:00 at the trailhead with clippers and hand saws, if you have them, and snacks and water. We have some tools, too! Questions? Call the office, 603-323-6252 or email Lynne.

Naturalist Lynne Flaccus has 30 years of experience in land conservation and stewardship, managing protected properties, studying wildlife, and educating adults and children.
