Coastal Weed Watchers Perennial Pepperweed Pull Volunteer Event

Perennial Pepperweed Pull on Monday, July 1.

There are two pepperweed sites in Hampton and one site in Seabrook with moderate infestations that require hand-pulling.  The plan is to rendezvous at the NHDOTPark and Ride in Hampton and caravan to each site.  This is a great opportunity to get familiar with this troublesome plant while working to protect our estuaries from infestation!
