This has been another busy year for the Northeast New Hanover Conservancy! Florence was not kind to our conservation areas and we are still getting notified of fallen trees near homes that are in conservation areas near residences. We are fortunate that the adjacent landowners are helping by removing broken trees when it is deemed necessary.
MEMBERSHIP DRIVE AND ADVERTISING
We are embarking on a much needed membership drive. This drive is focused on Landfall as we have much protected area in Landfall and few Landfall members. We intend to add signage to the entrance to the nature trails to ensure residents understand who we are and that we are the entity who created those trails. We would like to contribute to the Landfall home owner’s newsletter by adding a section describing a unique feature of the conservation areas for each printing. We have increased our visibility on the Landfall website and would like to get in front of the various Landfall groups to present the uniqueness of the conserved land. This should encourage participation as well as creating new opportunities for education and programs to encourage children and teenagers. We are fortunate to have Andy Wood on board who is willing to do presentations, bird walks, nature talks and summer camps for the people of Landfall. Forming a conservation group within Landfall made up of residents is another idea we are working on.
