Sunday, March 29, 10 a.m. — Invasive Species Removal at Quakertown Preserve

QP for FBWe are looking for volunteers to help us remove invasive plants that are encroaching on work done previously at the Quakertown Preserve in Franklin Township.

In the summer of 2011, Land Trust staff and volunteers helped restore several acres of wetlands that had been lost years ago when a man-made agricultural pond was created. We will be removing invasive species that are intruding upon those restored wetlands.

Wetlands are vital for helping ensure clean drinking water and to reduce flooding. They also provide a safe haven for plants and animals to thrive. Restoring the wetlands at Quakertown Preserve offered the added bonus of reconnecting the Capoolong Creek to the land.

If you can help us out or have any questions, please contact Land Steward Tom Thorsen at 908-237-4582 or tom@hunterdonlandtrust.org. Please dress appropriately for the weather, and bring water and snacks. Quakertown Preserve is located off Croton Road (Route 579) in Franklin Township across from Ralph Anthony Automotive.
