Please Join us for a work day at Opacum Land Trust’s Maurice Morneau Farm in Southbridge!

Saturday October 21st, 9am to Noon

Come when you can and stay as long as you can.

Refreshments will be provided and we’ll hang-out afterwards with some pizza for lunch!

The Maurice Morneau Farm is 120 acres of forest and farm land that Maurice Morneau donated to Opacum Land Trust in 2008. We have a tenant using the agricultural buildings and farm fields so we cannot open the land for general, public access, except for special events such as this. So, this is your chance to see this beautiful part of Southbridge and to help Opacum improve forest health, increase diverse wildlife habitat and battle invasive plant species.

Our two primary objectives for the work day will be to build brush piles for wildlife shelter and to create a number of water bars (simple erosion control water breaks) on an access road.

Please dress appropriately for this work, including work gloves and sturdy shoes, and be prepared to defend against ticks (bug spray will be available). If you want to help us with the water bars, please bring a shovel, pick or other similar tool, or just the willingness to do a little heavy work.

Directions will be provided to those who RSVP – if you can come, or think you might come, please let Ed Hood know by email ehood@opacumlt.org, or leave a message for him at 508-347-9144. Ext. 2 (please leave your contact info).
