Project Title & Description
Greening the Greenway
Mass Audubon with Groundwork Lawrence will develop a natural resource education and stewardship project to enhance stewardship of the Spicket River and adjacent green areas in Lawrence. With training and education provided by Mass Audubon and Groundwork Lawrence, ten Lawrence teens who comprise Groundwork Lawrence�s “Green Team” undertake Rapid Ecological Assessments of the Spicket River; document the ecological values of seven sites along the river; research and analyze the data to create a Natural Resource Management Plan for the river; and spread their knowledge through presentations to the public and local stakeholders. Our project expands upon the work that Groundwork Lawrence has accomplished in reclaiming the Spicket River and educating the Lawrence community on its value as a natural resource.
