Lend a Hand at Pine Island
Wednesday, 08/17/2016 (05:30 PM - 07:00 PM)


About this Event: Help care for Pine Island! This workday will help increase public access at the Pine Island preserve and conservation area, a mix of wetland and unique forest habitat owned by the City of Portsmouth.  This unique conservation property borders Portsmouth Regional Hospital.  Do you work nearby and wish there were nature trails available near you?  The Portsmouth Conservation Commission wants to help connect people to the forests and open spaces at Pine Island.  But first, basic trail clearing and trash removal (there's a lot!) is needed… You can make a vision for walking trails a reality! Catapult Seacoast, a young professional’s organization in the Seacoast region, will be there to help. The public is welcome!

What to Bring: Long pants and boots (or sturdy shoes you don’t mind getting dirty) are strongly recommended (poison ivy is in the vicinity!) and a water bottle. We’ll supply work gloves, tools, and snacks!
