!!! seems it only displays well the 2nd time? ugh.

Tools of the tradePlease join us on Sunday, April 10 from 9:00 to 11:59-ish for a work party at Mt. Archer Woods Preserve in Lyme to clean up the historic ruins area, which has been overrun by invasive barberry and covered by fallen trees and branches. There will be plenty to do!! (So don’t worry that the work will be done before you get there).

We will remove barberry, fallen trees, brush, and debris. Be sure to bring heavy-duty work gloves (barberry has thorns!). We will need loppers to cut thinner branches and saplings, and many people to carry branches and brush away from the site. Parker Lord has already done mowing of barberry in the open areas. If you have a wheelbarrow that can be easily pushed on a trail, bring that. We will meet at the parking lot and then decide which tools to carry in.

The ruins are a little more than a half-mile in on the white trail. Join us for all or part of the time.

There will be refreshments!

Meet at the Main Parking Lot of Mt Archer Woods on Mt Archer Road in Lyme.
Directions from Rte 156:
Rt. 156 north to Mt. Archer Road. Left onto Mt Archer Road. Go one mile on Mt Archer Road (bear left up the big hill). The parking lot is down a long driveway on the left, the 4th long driveway after you start up the hill. Look for the stone post marker that has “Mt Archer Woods Town of Lyme” written on it. It faces the road, so you can’t read it until you are on top of it. (If you get to 100 Mt. Archer Road, you have gone too far).

Please let me know if you are planning to be there. openspace@townlyme.org
