Clearing Prickers at Sowams

January 20th, 2022|Comments Off on Clearing Prickers at Sowams

Back in December, a group of Barrington High School students led by BLCT volunteers Cindy Pierce, Ellen Berren, Sara Horvet and Victor Lerish went into Sowams Woods to cut back prickers from the wild blueberry bushes. The BLCT is an all-volunteer organization, and we rely on the generosity of the Barrington community to keep our properties in great shape. If you'd like to find out how you can help, send an email to Victor at volunteers@blct.org  

Eagle Scout builds bridge at Johannis

January 6th, 2022|Comments Off on Eagle Scout builds bridge at Johannis

Barrington Scout Dane Winquist recently completed his Eagle Scout project by constructing a bog walk/bridge about 16 feet in length over a perennially wet area of trail at Johannis Wildlife Refuge, a BLCT property off of Sowams Rd. The new bridge replaced planks and logs that had been placed over the area, but were uneven and a challenge to walk over for the non sure-footed. It makes that part of the trail more pleasant and safer to traverse.
