Do you love Lyme’s preserves and want to help take care of them? Join us for a trail maintenance boot camp at Hartman Park to learn how you can help by becoming a trail volunteer or preserve steward. During the afternoon, learn:
- Basic trail maintenance and property stewardship tips.
- Invasive plant identification and control
- Introduction to the free smart phone app TrackKit, which tracks your path and lets you mark the locations of problems for trail reports. This app can also assist you if you get lost.
- Strategies to prevent tick bites.
Bring along heavy-duty gloves and light-weight tools: weeders, pruners, and/or loppers. Bring water. Snacks will be provided.
Meet at the Main Parking Lot of Hartman Park on Gungy Road, about 1 mile north of the 4-way stop signs at the intersection with Beaverbrook Road and Grassy Hill Road.
Registration required: Openspace@townlyme.org
If possible, it is asked that the app be downloaded before you come to the workshop. Instructions to download of the app TrackKIt will be forwarded to you at registration if requested.
