Kevin Bartsch, WLT President, invites the community to join him for a cup of coffee or tea and to discuss our initiatives, history, future and any other topics anyone would like to discuss! Friday, April 22nd, from 10:00-11:30 at the Cup*2Cafe in East Wareham.
Celebrate Earth Day! The Wareham Land Trust is once again participating in the Don’t Trash Wareham events scheduled all around town on Saturday, April 24th. Our “official” clean up will be taking place at the Bryant Farm property (Route 6 near Nessralla’s Farm Stand) at 9:00 a.m. Bring a garbage bag, gloves, and a smile. If you can’t be there for that time, we welcome all members to schedule their own time and whatever part of our town they would like to help beautify.
Looking ahead to May…the WLT is also playing a part in the town’s annual Oyster Festival coming up on Sunday, May 1st. Stop by our office location on Main Street. Volunteer members will be staffing the table all day and will happily answer any questions. We are also co-sponsoring a kick-off event that is part of the Speaker Series — “The Incredible Oyster” — on Tuesday, April 26th at Lindsey’s Restaurant.
Steve Patterson, Roger Williams University Shellfish Field Manager will discuss commercial cultivation techniques being used locally and the values of restoring and protecting critical estuarine habitat through the distribution of disease tolerant oysters into once-productive waters.
We’ll also hear from Wareham Middle School STEAM Program Students who have studied the local shellfish industry and will share their findings.
Preregistered attendees receive a complimentary cup of Lindsey’s famous seafood bisque; menu items and beverages will also be available for purchase.
FREE, but preregistration is required by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
