Join the Milford Land Conservation Trust and help us clean up our newest site on June 29th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. We will meet at the northern terminus of Bonsilene Street (map below) to clean up this 2.5-acre parcel of habitat donated by the Hubbard family. To effectively conserve the Hubbard Parcel, we need to remove trash, illegally dumped debris, and invasive plant species from the site. Come get to know us, learn about Milford land conservation, and help us protect this important habitat!
The Hubbard Parcel is a wooded property overlooking coastal wetland habitat in Woodmont. The parcel provides habitat for songbirds—including mourning doves, grackles, and catbirds—and other wildlife. Native plants, such as cottonwood, black walnut, and wild grape, compete with invasive plants like multiflora rose, knotweed, and garlic mustard. A combination of illegal dumping and leftover debris from Hurricane Sandy pose additional threats to the site’s native plants and animals. Cleaning up the site will help preserve the habitat for wildlife and the community.
Bring gardening/work gloves and be prepared to get a little messy! This will be a fun and productive way to contribute to Milford land conservation as we work to preserve our newest Land Conservation Trust property.
