Come learn about Swampscott’s conservation properties at the next meeting of the non-profit group, the Swampscott Conservancy.
The Swampscott Conservancy mission is to act as stewards for Swampscott’s existing conservation land which includes Harold King Forest as well as Ewing Woods, Palmer and Muskrat Ponds, Linscott Park, and the Blythswood Easement (off Little's Point Road). While not created by the Town, this volunteer stewardship organization would work in partnership with the Town and collaborate with the Town’s Conservation Commission, Open Space & Recreation Plan Committee, and Department of Public Works to ensure the protection of Swampscott’s conservation land. Issues to be addressed by the Conservancy would include: increasing awareness of the town’s conservation land among residents and improving access and the condition such properties, such as controlling the spread of invasive species.
At our next meeting we will be discussing organizing information and events for our table at the Farmer's Market on Sept. 16th, as well as on-going efforts toward trail maintenance, fundraising, and upcoming educational and fun activities on conservation lands in town.
