Part of the work of conservation is stewardship—the ongoing work of monitoring and caring for the lands we own or protect. What does stewardship entail?
Come conduct a stewardship visit with Chocorua Lake Conservancy Stewardship Director and naturalist Lynne Flaccus, and learn about our stewardship program. The Burtt Lot north of Chocorua Lake has no trails, but is a beautiful little CLC property with a boundary along the Chocorua River. Join us for an exploration and “stewardship review” of this 14-acre gem. The stream meanders through the property and creates floodplains of a variety of plants.
Along the way we’ll collect information for a natural resource inventory of this property and you can learn about how our volunteer stewards help us to monitor the properties we own. Come with curiosity and enthusiasm and we will create our own fun. Like to use a map and compass? Have a favorite navigation app on your phone? Either way we won’t get lost and no doubt will make some wonderful discoveries! Meet at Moose Meadows just south of the property—park in the pull-in across from the Patchwork House on Rt. 16—and we will carpool from there. Water, snacks and appropriate footwear for exploring are helpful. Questions? Call Lynne at 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.
