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 October 5th, 2023 at 8:30am, and will feature a community conversation with deCordova Museum. As deCordova embarks on a two-to-three-year renovation project, deCordova staff is using this pause as an opportunity to re-imagine curatorial and interpretive programs to establish a unique identity at the intersection of art, nature, and the environment. Guided by open-ended inquiry, the community conversation is a time for storytelling, idea-sharing, and memory. The resulting conversation will inform deCordova Museum's design process and the curatorial program. See flyer and Zoom link here.
