Looking for some fresh air and a chance to pitch in for Earth Day 2019, all with a view of a beautiful mountain? The Chocorua Lake Conservancy is hosting a spring-cleaning at the public access beaches along Chocorua Lake.
Join us on Earth Day to help care for a natural resource beloved by so many. The land all along the Rt. 16 side of the lake has been conserved by the CLC, and through the support of donors and volunteers the CLC is able to make this land accessible to the public. Beach areas that receive heavy use need regular stewardship to stay stable and healthy. In the spring, after winter storms dump branches and trees, and the snowmelt exposes litter, the Chocorua Lake beach areas can look a little worse for the wear. Before the leaves come out, it’s a good time to inventory what additional work may be needed later in the spring to reduce and prevent erosion, fix anything “broken,” and identify where invasive plants have found a foothold. Many hands and many eyes make light work!
Meet at 10AM at the Kiosk at the Island public parking area and we’ll go from there. Bring work gloves and clippers, a rake or a hand saw if you have them; we’ll have a few extras available. We’ll also supply garbage bags as needed. If you’re brave (and if the ice is gone by then), you could take a polar-ish plunge after! Questions or to let us know you’: call the CLC office at 603-323-6252.
