Do you have old stereos, VCRs, boomboxes, etc. that are just cluttering your house? Are you wanting to be sure they don’t end up in the landfill? Then we have a solution for you!
You’ve got your goggles on, you’re slicked up with sunscreen, your water shoes are firmly in place, you’re about to jump in the lake—and there it is: foamy pea soup, right on the top of the water. Though you might be tempted to take the leap anyway, it’s best to take a step back. Cyanobacteria blooms aren’t just any normal lake growth, and they can make people and animals really sick. Here in Charlotte, working through the Lake Champlain Committee, volunteers are testing the water so you can jump in without fear.
On Saturday, Sept. 29, the Thompson’s Point Leaseholders Association and the Charlotte Invasive Collaborative, sponsored an Assault on Buckthorn Day on Thompson’s Point.
Did you know that Vermont was the first state to designate a day of the year to clean up litter along the roadsides? And on that day in 1970, participation and results far exceeded expectations: 95 percent of the 2,400 miles of the interstate and state roads and 75 percent of the 8,300 miles of town roads were cleared of garbage! Thanks
The Charlotte Park and Wildlife Refuge Oversight Committee invites volunteers to work on a spring project at the park. Last year we had a great time planting disease-resistant elms.
