Work Begins at Sowams Meadows Preserve

Work has begun on the 4 year restoration of the salt marsh and meadows at Sowams Meadows Preserve on Market St. The restoration effort is a partnership between the Warren Land Conservation Trust, (WLCT) the Natural Resources Conservation Service of the USDA (NRCS), and Save the Bay. An initial mowing of the existing fields is complete and now we are working on removing invasive trees and vines from the borders of the fields. The work is being done by crews from Staton’s Landscaping in Warren under contract with NRCS. We will be working in the marsh as well to improve conditions there and starting a multi-year effort to transform the old hay fields into diverse native pollinator habitats. The full restoration plan is available here
