Please Help Spread Wood Chips
The Lordship Improvement Association (LIA) needs to spread wood chips on the nature path at Russian Beach to inhibit overgrowth that harbors ticks. We need your help!
On Thursday, April 20, the Town of Stratford will deliver wood chip piles to the Bluffs at Victoria Lawn and Laurel Street. We need volunteers to bring wheelbarrows, pitchforks, tarps and rakes to move the chips down to the path and spread them. Tarps can be used to drag chips down the steps at Laurel Street.
Stratford Greensweep is April 23, but we need to get a head start to minimize the time the piles are on the Bluffs. Please plan to help whenever you can, as follows:
· Load your wheelbarrow at Victoria or Laurel (see attached map)
· Wheel it to beach access. Roll your wheelbarrow directly down the Victoria pathway to the trail. At the Laurel steps, pour your wheelbarrow onto a tarp and drag it down the steps to spread it on the trail.
· Spread chips to a depth of approximately 4”
· Wear sunscreen and insect repellent.
