On Saturday, Jun. 5, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., the newly established Lyme Pollinator Pathway (LPP) will hold a Community Work Day to improve the site of a pollinator meadow and nature trail at the Lyme Land Trust’s Riverside Preserve – a haven for butterflies and other pollinators along the bank of the Eightmile River. Participants will learn how to recognize native and invasive plants, and leave with the knowledge and resources to create a pollinator patch of their own. Participants are encouraged to bring a pair of work gloves, clippers/loppers, a shovel and a water bottle. Register for the work day by sending an email to email@example.com. The LPP is an initiative of the Town of Lyme and the Lyme Land Trust.
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.
