36th Annual Meeting – Recap

On Tuesday, January 16th at 7pm the Warren Land Trust held its 36th annual meeting at the Historic Warren Armory. The meeting was well attended despite a messy wintery mix of weather.

He expressed gratitude to a host of volunteers and donors who have helped to make the past year a successful one and extended an invitation for new volunteers.
An outline of progress at both Sowams Meadows and Jacob’s Point was presented.

Rock also thanked the local merchants for their  generous donations of food and beverage for the event’s refreshment table.

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
