Volunteer Days with SCA NH corps

Barely days into conservation season we are obliged to let everyone know about opportunities for volunteering or events we are collaborating with volunteer efforts.

May 18th is going to be a big Volunteer Day with the SCA.  Some of our crews will be leading a project with CityYear of Manchester up at Camp Spaulding in Penacook, NH.  Spaulding is the summer camp for NH youth provided by NH Children and Families Services.  We’ll be doing some brushing and clearing to help them get ready for another big summer.  We are also continuing a multi-hitch project with the Belmont Conservation Commission; they are partnering with SCA and getting support of NHLA and others to clear glossy buckthorn from a sensative wildlife watershed.  This volunteer day will bring in Boy Scouts and High School students to help remove more of the tenacious invasive.  Then on Saturday, May 19th the general public and Belmont Con. Comm. supporters will be in to assist.
