Over the course of the morning on April 29, ninety-two people contributed their time and effort to help develop the Lead Mills conservation area as a flowering meadow and to clear trash. Here’s what they accomplished (we love numbers!):

  •  250 plugs of native flowers planted
  •  80 shrub and tree seedlings planted
  •  edge of road berm weeded and replanted
  • 5 bales of salt marsh hay spread on the flower beds
  • ten bags of trash removed including 3 bags of recyclables

We thank all those who gave their time, particularly those who brought along youngsters and helped introduce  Marblehead’s natural open spaces to future stewards.
