Terrapin Barrier Fence Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance of our terrapin barrier fence is needed to keep the fence at peak effectiveness and keep nesting terrapins off of the road.  We are looking for the help of a few volunteers throughout the nesting season to keep our fencing in shape by trimming vegetation and patching broken sections as they occur.

When: May – August.
Eligibility: 18 years and up. Willing to conduct physical work in hot, buggy conditions around poison ivy, willingness to use hammers and weed-whackers as needed.
Required Commitment: A minimum of 5 days.
Description: Walk our property and quarter mile trail and check for terrapin activity.
