EARTH DAY CLEANUPS
Saturday, April 23, 2022

Fine weather and a robust turnout on both the Franklin and South Brunswick sides of Route 27 resulted in one of the best Earth Day cleanups ever!



Above, volunteers at the morning session collected 20 bags of trash near Rockingham Historic Site and along Laurel Avenue.

Below, afternoon litter collectors found plenty to fill their bags in the Mapleton Preserve (including the new "Blue" Trail, to be officially opened on June 4th, National Trails Day), on the Rail Trail, and along Ridge Road and Division Street.

CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT
December 19, 2021

Led by trustee Karen Linder, seven counters helped complete the Kingston segment of the 2021 Audubon Christmas Bird Count. All told, the day was pretty quiet. Our species count of 38 was normal but our totals were a little on the low side. However, the two pileated woodpeckers and the 54 turkeys seen near Ridge Road the day before the count were definitely highlights. Robins have been very abundant in Kingston this winter, as they are still feasting on holly berries and callery pears. The official tally may be viewed here:
