On Saturday, Sep. 21, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., learn from an Audubon Connecticut expert how to identify and remove invasive plant species along the trail at Hartman Park. Participants will learn how to enhance local wildlife habitat by controlling invasive plants in your own backyard or as a volunteer in our nature preserves. Participants in this free event should bring their own heavy-duty work gloves, protective clothes, water, shovels, pruning shears, etc. The event is part of the Lyme Forest Block Conservation Project – an initiative launched by Audubon Connecticut, in partnership with the Town of Lyme and the Lyme Land Trust. Space is limited. Residents who plan to attend should fill out this RSVP form in Google Docs.
The Lyme Volunteer Fair will be held on Sunday, Oct. 23, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Lyme Public Library, where more than 30 Lyme-affiliated nonprofits, associations, boards and commissions will be on hand with opportunities for local residents to volunteer and be of service to our town.
