Election Day Clean-Up at Norwalk Land Trust's Big West Cedar Property
November 2013 Norwalk Land Trust and BuildOn volunteers took advantage of a day off from school and work and cleaned up NLT's Big West Cedar Property. The BuildOn students from Norwalk high schools volunteered over 62 man hours, removing trash and invasives, and rebuilding trails that were damaged by flood waters. Thanks to our volunteers!
Clean Up at White Barn Property in Cranbury
November 2013 Seven volunteers came together in early November to help to rid the White Barn Preserve of euonymous, an invasive species. The shrub was cut with pruners, hand saw and chain saw and a huge pile was assembled for the chipper (raffaele). Additionally a fallen pine tree trunk that fell during Hurricane Sandy was removed from the lawn near the pond. Clearing away the invasives allows more valuable plants to grow, such as the Native American Holly bush.
