Stewardship Day

  • Charlotte C. Browne Memorial Woods (map)

Want to see a gorgeous view of Mount Chocorua you’ve never seen before? Looking for a “green workout”?

Join Chocorua Lake Conservancy staff and volunteers to work on clearing the edge of the fields at the Charlotte C. Browne Memorial Woods, a “preserve with a view.” The 67-acre preserve has woodlands and frontage on the Chocorua River, plus two fields that the CLC maintains for low bush blueberries and other fruiting shrubs for wildlife.

Despite annual mowing, saplings from the surrounding forest continuously reach for the sun along the field edges. Many hands with clippers and handsaws will make light work as we keep the encroaching forest from shading the blueberries and shrubs in the field. In 2018 volunteers helped to plant 100 shrubs in the field and we will trim around them, as well, to make sure they have a good summer growing season.

We hope you’ll join us for a few hours of camaraderie, exercise and fresh air, all within view of Mount Chocorua. Bring your favorite tools and work gloves, or use ours, along with water, and be prepared for ticks. Snacks provided!

Parking is on the north side of Washington Hill Road. Pull off the road or into the field. Questions: 603-323-6252.
