Dear Friends, Partners, and Volunteers,  


A huge crowd of volunteers turned out for the Great Bay Estuarine Research Reserve's workday at Adam's Point on Saturday! The weather was perfect, the erosion problem solved, shrubs planted, and we saw many smiles on the faces of volunteers and staff alike. Thanks to the 30+ folks who turned out to help. Check out photos here.   


Lots of news and events on the Garlic Mustard Challenge, volunteer trainings, and more below. Hope to see you at an event soon!
