Beede Wildlife Zoom – The Beede Site Group hosted a public Backyard Wildlife Lunch-n-Learn with neighbors covering such topics as the ongoing Superfund clean-up, conservation work and recent wildlife camera images, and future land reuse ideas provided by members of the community.
Subject matter experts presenting during the Zoom webinar included Woodard & Curran’s Environmental Scientist George Franklin, Environmental Engineer Keri Lauer, and Remediation Lead Cathy Rockwell, and Project Coordinator Mike Skinner.
This 1-minute survey has two prompts, along with a chance for you to share any ideas you may have for the future of the 40-acre Beede Site. We aim to better understand the wishes of our Plaistow neighbors.
Did you know there’s a wildlife corridor in Plaistow?
Since installing the new game cameras as part of its Gold-Certified Wildlife Habitat Council 2020-2021 projects, the Group has identified deer, coyote, wild turkeys, hawks, blackbirds, cardinals, woodchucks, rabbits, skunks, opossum, chipmunks, raccoons, ducks, squirrels, and most recently, a bobcat family.
The Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) is a nonprofit, non-lobbying organization dedicated to increasing the quality and amount of wildlife habitat on corporate, private and public lands.
WHC devotes its resources to building partnerships with corporations and conservation groups to create solutions that balance the demands of economic growth with the requirements of a healthy, biodiverse and sustainable environment.
WHC-assisted wildlife habitat and conservation education programs are found in 45 states, the District of Columbia and twelve other countries.
