MtA2C Coalition Ensuring Region's Biodiversity
Check out this great piece about the successful model of the Mount Agamenticus to the Sea Coalition, of which KLT is a part. And read about the Coalition's plans to ensure the rich biodiversity of the region through the conservation of 6,000 more acres around Mt. A in the next twenty years.
Backyard Botanist: Infestation of Hemlocks in Maine
White dots - woolly adelgids
One of the most magnificent, graceful conifers, the Canadian hemlock is in trouble. Native to New England, the Canadian hemlock, Tsuga canadensis, can be identified by its smooth, rounded needles that lie flat on each side of the stem. It is also distinguished by the parallel whitish lines on the upper side of each needle and its small cones.
Exploring Vernal Pools at Fairchild Property
Spring means vernal pools. Sue Bickford of the Wells Preserve recently led a group of KLT explorers in search of salamander and frog eggs and fairy shrimp in two vernal pools on the Fairchild property. The group got to inspect the eggs up close and learned how to identify the different types.
Volunteers Make it Happen
Gary Mitchell, Stewardship Volunteer
"I volunteered to be a steward for KLT because it was important to me to be part of the process of acquiring and protecting habitat where wildlife could flourish."
Year of the Farm Events
To increase understanding and appreciation of the importance of local farmland, KLT is offering diverse events throughout the year including walks, talks and demonstrations. Join us for the next one:
Open Farm Day at Rustlewood
Saturday June 1 at 11am - 3pm
Rustlewood Farm, 110 Wilson Road (Rte 101)
Come celebrate spring at Rustlewood Farm and experience the land that KLT is working to conserve. This event offers Kittery residents the chance to see first-hand what their tax dollars could protect if the Open Space bond passes on June 11.
Bring your family and friends for some farm fun. Food will be available, but you're welcome to bring a picnic. Activities include hay rides, pony rides for kids, and cow patty bingo. And with some spring time luck, a calf might be born at the event, as it was at last fall’s Open Farm Day! (Raindate June 2)
This and other Year of the Farm events are open to the public.
