The Barrington Land Conservation Trust would love your help.
The land trust is replacing knotweed and phragmites at Allin’s Cove on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 9 am to noon. It’s part of a three-year project.
“We’re almost there,” said Sandra Wyatt of the land trust. “We need a lot of help to plant over 300 shrubs and grasses in three areas around Allin's Cove."
Allin's Cove is a 21-acre embayment at the mouth of the Annawamscutt Creek bordered by salt marshes, and located along the Providence River just to the east of Bullocks Cove.
"We have an extra request for a pickup truck, van or other vehicle with plenty of storage area to transport the plants to two of the sites" she said. "Please bring a shovel and a trowel if you have them.”
Meet at 28 Byway Road. Park on Green Avenue or Byway Road.
Wyatt recommends that you wear long pants, gloves and sturdy shoes. Insect repellant is advisable year-round for tick protection.
“We hope to get a lot of volunteers so we can get all the plants in the ground on the 26th. It would be very helpful to know how many people we can rely on,” she said.
If you are able to help, contact Wyatt at email@example.com or 401-246-0747.
