Climate Change and Great Bay Habitats - Hike, Work, and Learn at Lubberland Creek Preserve, Newmarket: FULL
Limited Capacity full

Location:  Parking Lot behind St. Anthony's Bakery
Transportation: Yellow School Bus

The Volunteer Event is being sponsored by TNC on the Lubberland Creek Preserve in Newmarket, NH. The event includes 3 stations focused on estuary education and invasive plant removal. Students will be broken into 3 groups and rotate between the three stations.
Station 1 will be an educational hike on the trails at Lubberland Creek which will showcase the habitats and species that exist in the Great Bay watershed and describe the land conservation story and tools that were used to protect the land that was at one time considered for the siting of the largest oil refinery in the US.
Station 2 will be located at the trail terminus on the shore of Great Bay. Here, we will discuss our oyster Citizen Science activities at TNC, and teach participants how to use the Picture Post at this site to help us monitoring changes over time to the salt marsh.
Station 3 will include a hands-on work activity to help us locate and pull the non-native garlic mustard plants from our Preserve from the wooded and shrubby areas near the trailhead.

We will be walking on hiking trails for the educational hike with some minor topography. The garlic mustard site is off-trail, brushy, flat and easy to get to from the parking area.

Participants should wear sturdy boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Long sleeves and pants are encouraged to protect against bugs and thorny vegetation.

Participants should bring a re-fillable water bottle.

Water, work gloves, tools and instructions will be provided. A picnic lunch will be provided.
