Do you live on the Winnicut River, or one of its brooks or streams? Would you like to learn how to have a "better backyard," or be a steward for wildlife? Do you enjoy birding, kayaking, or trail walking? Have you got Invasive Plant Problems? Would you like to learn more about the Winnicut River and its wildlife diversity, from its treefrogs and trout lilies, to its black bears and white cedars? If you can answer 'yes' to any of the above, we need YOU. The WRWC is working hard to develop a Better Backyard campaign which promises to be a rewarding program for land/homeowners interested in protecting the integrity of the Winnicut River, its streams and brooks, and ultimately Great Bay, and the wildlife that lives and breeds here.

Piscataqua Waterfront Festival, June 4, 2011
One week from tomorrow the Winnicut River Watershed Coalition will be attending this event.  From the Moffatt-Ladd website:

"The festival features music, traditional maritime artisan demonstrations, free museum tours, hands-on children’s activities, boats, booths, and displays by area businesses and non-profit organizations, and an heirloom plant sale of plants from the Moffatt-Ladd garden.  The festival is designed to heighten awareness of our maritime history, contemporary water quality issues, boat building heritage and opportunities, marine management, water recreation, and conservation."

Curious how you'll manage to move back and forth between the PWF and the Chowder festival?  Portsmouth Harbor Cruises will be providing free boat shuttles between the Ceres Street Wharf and the Chowder Festival in Prescott Park! 

Stop on by our table and say hello!
