Well it seems this is the winter that will never end. There’s been plenty of opportunities for all those great snowy endeavors we all missed so much last year – snowshoeing at Ordiorne State Park, cross country skiing on the Rockingham Rec Trail and ice fishing on the Bellamy Reservoir. If you’re out and about enjoying our Seacoast in the winter share your tales with us on our Facebook page. We love to see folks enjoying our wonderful lands and waters.
Though your yard might still be blanketed in white soon enough it will be time to do some landscaping and spiffing up for spring. A traditional part of that spring clean up is to fertilize your lawn but lawn fertilizer is also a big part of the pollution problem in Great Bay. Did you know that most established lawns in the Seacoast don’t need supplemental fertilizer? They’ll be perfectly green and lush if you just leave your clippings. Find out more about how you can have a green lawn and help prevent water pollution in our feature story on New Castle’s efforts.
From all of us at PREP, thank you for reading and most importantly for caring,
