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.

Looking upstream to culvert outflow, Winnicut Rd., Greenland

Slight riffling...

"Perched" culvert (notice the 6" waterfall) makes fish (trout) passage impossible

Looking downstream from culvert area

Looking further downstream, same section of brook (off Winnicut Rd., Greenland).  A residence abuts the brook on the left -- property is just visible through the trees in background.  Right bank abuts poised development.
