Trustee Rick Findlay manages LCT’s Invasive Control Program. Littleton is not immune to the rampant destruction caused by invasive plants such as Mile-a-Minute vine, Glossy Buckthorn, Black Swallow-wort, Oriental Bittersweet, Japanese Knotweed, Multiflora Rose, and Garlic Mustard.
Rick hopes to assemble a team of volunteers dedicated to tracking and controlling the spread of these plants.
NOW is the time to plan for 2020. If you can assist Rick in the quest to eliminate invasive plant species, please contact him at email@example.com.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much!

We have received some great photos from the recent Scavenger Hunt at the Hartwell Memorial Family Preserve. Thank you to Merilee Wright and Cindy Proulx, our winners of the photo contest. Merilee submitted – Cousins Bonding Time on the Old Stone Bridge and Cindy’s photo features her daughters Amy and Emily with the rock encased in the tree roots.
It was so great to see kids of all ages having fun outside, away from all of life’s distractions, hanging out with their parents.
We’ve also included some other photos that were submitted from the event highlighting some of the various objects sought after on the trails.
