What’s happening in the parking lot behind the old CVS building (now a Middlesex Hospital Primary Care facility)? Can you see the water? Hopefully, you noticed the vista is improving with the removal of phragmities and the clearing of some debris and invasive plants.
This land was donated by Mrs. Lou Rae Beers to the Old Saybrook Land Trust in 2010. The stewardship committee evaluated the potential of removing years of accumulation natural and otherwise. The town public works personnel trucked off a couch, chairs and other odd discards. Then the team went to work removing the vines, fallen trees, and the dreaded invasive knotweed plants. Intermingled with the natural environment were large amounts of plastic bags, paper cups and other assorted trash that may have blown in or been discarded there. We invite you to join us Saturday October 20th at 8:30 to join in this effort.
