All Smiles from Sewall Woods

Published: Oct 9, 2017

Over 30 volunteers showed up on Saturday, Oct. 7 to help restore Sewall Woods, a special property in Wolfeboro, NH owned and managed by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust (LRCT).  Partnering with the Stewardship Network: New England (TSNNE) to recruit volunteers and supply tools, the collaborative effort had a great pay off. "We had to close down sign-ups," reports Emily Lord of TSNNE. "People came from all over the Seacoast and Lakes Region to lend a hand. Lots of smiling volunteers!"  Check out photos using the links below. To quote one of our youngest volunteers at the event, "I think this was a GREAT way to spend a Saturday morning."  That's what we like to hear - having fun and doing good!
