A three-year effort by the Barrington Land Conservation Trust to replace invasive knotweed and phragmites with native plants at Allin’s Cove continues on Saturday morning, Oct. 27, during low tide.
“We need a lot of help to plant 300 shrubs and small trees on the upland bank at Byway Road,” said Beth Rondeau of the Land Trust.
The Land Trust wants to get all of the plants into the ground in about two hours during low tide, Rondeau said. Volunteers will be there from about 9 to 11 am.
“This would make a great group service project,” said Helen Tjader of the Land Trust. “Get outdoors and enjoy the fall beauty of the cove as we restore the shoreline.”
Please bring a shovel if you have one, they said. Meet at 28 Byway Road. Park on Green Avenue or Byway Road.
Dress for the day's weather, Rondeau said.
“Long pants, gloves and sturdy shoes are recommended,” she said. “Insect repellant is advisable year-round for tick protection.
“It is important to know how many people can help us to assure we get all those plants in the ground in two hours,” Rondeau said.
