Wilmington Planning & Conservation Department Hosts Successful Series Of Earth Day Events

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Department of Planning & Conservation recently wrapped up a series of successful Earth Day Events that occurred over the last few weeks.

Highlights include:

  • About 35 people attended the library presentation about wetland resource areas and Conservation Land in Wilmington. A PDF of the presentation can be found on the Department of Planning & Conservation website.
  • About 40 adults and kids participated in the Town Forest Nature Walk. Congrats to Jackie Davis, who won the photo contest and received a nature field guide.
  • Conservation Land and other open space was cleaned of trash and debris at Glen Road Berry Bog (Town Hall), Town Forest, Town Park, and Alderwood Estates as part of the first spring Town Clean-Up Day. The annual fall Town Clean-Up Day will be in September.
  • 2 vernal pools were identified for potential certification with help from Suzanne Sullivan, Martha Stevenson, and Mike McInnis.
  • The new Land Stewardship Program Handbook was introduced to prospective stewards during a workshop at Cormier Park. The Handbook can be found on the Department Open Space and Land Stewardship website.

The Department of Planning & Conservation would like to thank the staff of the Wilmington Memorial Library for coordinating the presentation and nature walk; Camp 40 Acres for providing parking for the nature walk; and Take Junk for providing high-visibility t-shirts, volunteering time, and picking up trash on Clean-Up Day.
