Collect coastal trash and bring it to the Transfer Station on Saturday for weighing, inventorying and proper disposal as part of this annual, international effort to stop pollution of our oceans and shorelines.

Coming in January — Harvest Potluck

Pickled, Frozen and Dried

What you’ve got too much of from your garden now, or shoot too much of during hunting season — pickle it, freeze it or dry it, and bring it to share with your neighbors in January, when we need it and good fellowship both. To celebrate the bounty of where we live. GCC date TBD.

Volunteers Needed

Culvert Project

Can you help Georgetown plan for potential flooding by taking pictures following exceptionally heavy rains?  Volunteers still needed on Robinhood and Jewett Roads for the culvert planning project!  Data will be analyzed by UNH civil and environmental engineering students under the supervision of Professor Nancy Kinner of the Georgetown Conservation Commission in this assessment project begun in 2015 in coordination with our Road Commissioner.  To volunteer or learn more about volunteering, email the team at georgetownculverts2019@gmail.com

Like to be outdoors?  Have a chainsaw (or a handsaw)?   We always need help with trail maintenance at Ipcar and Round the Cove Preserves.  Contact us at conserve04548@gmail.com 

Seasonal Notices

Deer Ticks Are Out

Remember to check yourself regularly for deer (black-legged) ticks.  The nymphs are tiny, most active in early spring, and may carry five different diseases in the Midcoast.  Wearing Permethrin treated clothing can help repel them.  Tick Borne Diseases

IF&W has declared Arrowsic and Georgetown WMD 25A for Antlerless Deer Permits.  See this ‘Message to Hunters’ from the Tick Group:

Wood (or dog) tick, left, is much bigger than the deer (or black-legged) tick, right. It’s the deer tick that transmits diseases.
