Invasive Plants

Learn more about aggressive, non-native plants threatening our local habitats, and how you can control them in your own backyard! The Lincoln Land Conservation Trust and Conservation Department have collaborated to release a free booklet about invasive plants and native alternatives that can be viewed here. You can also pick up a physical copy in the LLCT or Conservation Department office.

Conservation Coffee

The Lincoln Conservation Department and Lincoln Land Conservation Trust host a "Conservation Coffee" the first Thursday of every month on Zoom. During these ~1 hour meetings, Conservation and LLCT staff share recent updates and information about upcoming events. We often have a guest speaker who presents on a local conservation topic. Past topics have included the jellyfish of Walden Pond, wildlife at Farrar Pond, Conservation Department Land Management tactics, the geology of Fairhaven Bay, and others. Please email if you would like to get on the email list for notifications. 

Upcoming Conservation Coffee:

The next Conservation Coffee will be held on December 7th, 2023 at 8:30am, and will feature a presentation by GrowNative. When it comes to native plants and wildlife, every garden matters. Grow Native Massachusetts promotes the use of native plants in our built landscape to foster ecosystem resilience and community. Join Meredith Gallogly, Manager of Programs, as she discusses Grow Native’s mission and programs. Meredith will also introduce the topic of keystone plant species. See flyer and Zoom link here.
