The focus of the day will be to maintain management of the 15-acre shrubland habitat atop Mount A. Early successional forest in New England is decreasing and certain species, such as New England Cottontail, need this habitat to thrive. Specific sections of the summit are cut on a five-year rotation. Volunteer work will involve hauling brush to various locations for wood chipping. Chips will be saved for future use as mulch in Mount A’s plant beds.
The Mount Agamenticus region consists of more than 10,000 acres of forest, wetlands, ponds and streams. It takes a lot of work to care for this land and we are counting on support from volunteers to help protect this great place. The best way to get involved and make a difference is through the Community Work Days program. There’s lots of work to be done to protect the beauty and the environment of Mount Agamenticus. Come and have some fun and join us for the 2023 field season!
