Stewardship Day—Invasives Pull

  • The Grove, Chocorua Lake (map)

Looking for fresh air and exercise? Want to learn more about invasive plant removal, and help keep invasive shrubs at bay along the banks of Chocorua Lake?

Join us for a morning of invasive plant control at the Grove public access area on Chocorua Lake, clipping, digging, and removing a number of shrubs that can take over the natives along the lake buffer.

What are invasive plants? Those that grow quickly, produce high seed or fruit counts, and can out-compete the native NH plants. Shiny buckthorn, Japanese knotweed, barberry, and some honeysuckles are all found in the Grove and our annual efforts help eradicate or keep them under control. Come learn how to spot and identify some common invasives and how to get rid of them!

Bring your favorite clippers and shovel, and work gloves if you have them. We’ll have extra if needed, along with garbage bags. A few hours of your help will go a long way!  Meet at the parking area at the Grove at 9AM and we’ll go from there. Questions: 603-323-6252.
