November 9, 2019: Spread woodchips at Serene Ravine

9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Thanks everyone!
Wow in just over an hour we were able to spread all of the mulch wood chips that were dropped last Sunday. The pile looked a little daunting but with many volunteers coming out including students from Broadneck we worked quickly to spread the pile throughout the path as well as the parking pad.
When you have a few minutes go down and take a walk along the newly mulched path and enjoy the autumn days and see what wildlife you can find.

Wednesday Weed Warriors at the Serene Ravine  5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Wednesday Weed Warriors is active again.  Keep social distancing, with no more than 10 people at a time.

Join us at Serene Ravine, across from 1037 Lake Claire Drive, to continue removing Garlic Mustard and Bush Killer along the stream feeding into Lake Claire.  Bring trash bags to carry these alien invasive plants, and reduce the chance that they will spread to other locations.

More Projects in the planning

We have many projects that we are discussing, and starting to plan for.  These include:

    • Beach erosion at all beaches (discussed at the CSCIA quarterly meeting Summer 2016).
    • Run-off at the Deep Creek boat ramp.
    • Bamboo eradication along Fairwinds Marina.
    • Run-off at Graul’s parking lot and ball field.
    • Phragmites control at Little Magothy inlet.
    • Erosion control at the Lake Claire Beach parking lot.
  • and more…

All these will require upfront investments ! While we hope to obtain various grants to pay for the bulk of the work, the request for these grants often require site plans describing every aspect of the work to be accomplished.  These plans require the participation of professionals, whom we will pay from the funds of the Cape Conservation Corps.  This is one way you can help ! Our Harvest Bash fundraiser goes a long way  (thank you to all who were there !).   Your $20 annual membership donation (tax deductible) goes the rest of the way.

And these projects will also require time investment from volunteers.  Many of these grants require community participation in manpower.  The more of us showing up with shovels, and other implements, the better the community looks to the grant givers, and the more likely they will be willing to give us the next grant.  So this is the other way you can help !  Whether or not you contribute with membership or Harvest Bash, give us you contact information (email is preferred) so we can let you know of the next work day.
