  • Barton Cove Water chestnut pull

    June 29, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
    Barton Cove, Gill, MA 01354, USA

    Help save the Connecticut River from an alien invader!
    This is a great opportunity to get on the water and have some fun… all for a good cause. Join us for one or all four sessions.

    Water chestnut is an invasive plant that has the potential to spread and get out of control. It is wreaking havoc on native species and interfering with recreation on our rivers. We will be hand-pulling the plants which pull up easily!

    The Connecticut River Conservancy and Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center have joined forces for this team effort to help keep the area in and around Barton Cove free of water chestnut.

    Meet at the Barton Cove Canoe and Kayak Rental Office in Gill, MA (82 French King Highway). 

    Suggested clothing; work gloves, shoes, and long pants that can get wet. Polarized sunglasses if available.
