Habitat and Water Quality Improvement at Rustlewood Farm
Shrubland is currently being developed at KLT's recently conserved, 300-acre Rustlewood Farm. The goal of this work is to help protect the water quality of Spruce Creek and Curtts Ridge Brook and create safe habitat for wildlife like the threatened New England cottontail.

Talk: A History of Brave Boat Harbor
Sandra Rux answers questions after her talk at The Star Theater
Sandra Rux, Curator Emerita for the Portsmouth Historical Society, gave a lively, informative talk about the history of Brave Boat Harbor. She traced the area's development from quiet marshes and farmlands in the 17th century to conflict and garrison homesteads in the early 18th century to its identity as School District 6 in the 19th and 20th centuries. She also highlighted the historic value of the land in KLT's Brave Boat Headwaters.
