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.

The Winnicut Coalition and Portsmouth Open Market

The gundalow sailing on the  bay, as most people have seen her.
Click here to read an interesting NHPR article on the new Gundalow being built in Portsmouth, NH, for the Gundalow Company.  What a thrill it will be to sail the waters of the Piscataqua region when it is finished!

The Gundalow Company is also part of another great project this summer in the form of a series of Open Markets every Sunday at Strawbery Banke (pix of previous market days can be seen under the 'Blog' link found under the 'Home' drop-down).  The Gundalow Co. is featuring and celebrating a local river group working to protect rivers and streams in and around, and including, Great Bay.  The Winnicut Coalition is one of these such groups and will be on hand August 7th to answer questions about Winnicut River-related issues and events, pass out dog waste baggies and bones (part of the NH Coastal Program's 'Scoop-the-Poop' campaign), and share lots of other conservation info.  Come on into Portsmouth and enjoy a great afternoon of fun and shopping (market runs from 10am to 4pm), and learn about the maritime history of 'Puddle Dock' and 'Strawbery Banke'!
