WALPOLE, N.H. — The newly formed Walpole/Alstead Land Stewardship Collaborative (WALS) invites area residents to a free informational dinner on May 29, 2019 from 5:30-8:00pm at the Walpole Town Hall. Those interested in promoting land stewardship and learning more about the natural and cultural resources of your land and neighborhood are invited to attend this special community event.
This event is an opportunity to discover the significance of your property and how it fits into the greater landscape as a whole, and will allow Walpole and Alstead residents to celebrate the natural beauty of this place we call home, and our connections to the land.
The WALS Collaborative is interested in hearing from residents regarding their interests associated with their property. Whether it is managing the natural resources on your land, enhancing wildlife habitat, harvesting timber, trail building, or preserving the cultural heritage of our region, we would like to learn which issues are most important to you.
Natural Resource professionals will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss your conservation and stewardship goals. This is a chance to learn the land stewardship interests you may have in common with your neighbors and to identify what support is available to help you achieve your hopes and dreams for your property.
Registration is required for this event. To register online visit: www.cheshireconservation.org/
If you have questions or require assistance with registration, please contact Lola at email@example.com or call 603-756-2988 x115
About the WALS Collaborative
The Walpole/Alstead Land Stewardship Collaborative (WALS) is an informal group of private and public neighbors in Walpole and Alstead, New Hampshire. The WALS Collaborative shares information and ideas and helps neighbors to work together across property boundaries to create and maintain trails, manage wildlife habitats, protect ecological and historic features, host workshops, and support the stewardship of our local farms and forests. The mission of the WALS Collaborative is to encourage landowners to develop an intimate connection to the land, empower them to learn more about how to best meet their land stewardship goals, and aid members in seeking available assistance to help them sustain the resources on their property.
