Care of Our Bluffs Is Everyone’s Responsibility

We’d like to communicate what is being done on the Lordship Bluffs, and encourage you to join us.
We need more help from our community. We want to remind you, our neighbors, how important it is
to care for our shared environment. If it is to be preserved, you need to get involved. 

 

We live in a special community, with lots of active families. There is real connection here, unlike other neighborhoods. One of the amazing resources that we enjoy is being able to stroll down to the Bluffs and access the beach at any time of year. 

 

If you live in Lordship, this is a list of important things to know:


• Remove invasives only under supervision of project leaders, so native ground
covers can stabilize the bluffs as well as provide interest for humans and food
for wildlife.


• Encourage dog walkers to take their bags of dog excrement home and not throw
them over the bluffs. In the 2700 square foot section we worked over Feb. 20-21,
there was at least 50 plastic bags of dog poop!


• We have planted native blueberries, cranberries, milkweed for butterfly
migration, etc.


• Consider bringing a trash bag every time you go to the beach, pick up trash,
and take it with you. We noticed a huge amount of plastic debris that might
have blown from recycling bins, littered everywhere. 


• People are still dumping grass clippings, holiday cuttings etc. Now WE  get to
remove it. Please don’t dump your yard waste in our community areas!
