  • Who Let the Dogs Out? (WARNING: partial nudity)

    | June 7, 2013

    vicious beasts

    "Isn't that the place that doesn't allow dogs?" is the question I get almost invariably when I reveal where I work.

    "That's right," I smile. No Pets, No Bikes* say our signs. Which means, regrettably, no dogs allowed here, even though I can think of few things that make me happier than boyhood memories of autumn walks with my favorite mutt, Buck, at my side.

    Alas, dogs (along with bikes, horses, snowmobiles, ATVs, stereos, lasers, monster trucks, etc.) have been barred from the Wells Reserve at Laudholm's trails since the early 90's.

    Why?

    Well, the short answer is: to preserve the nature here at the Reserve.

    But here's my longer answer.

  • Laudholm Beach Stewards

    | April 19, 2013

    Sending a big thank you to the generous team of children and adults who participated in yesterday's Laudholm Beach clean-up! We found cans, bottles, cigarette butts, fishing/lobster gear, a brush, comb, dock float, rope, ribbon, styrofoam, plastic bits, and some beach stabilization debris.

    Prior to the clean-up, some of us watched the public film screening of "Bag It" in the auditorium. I hope that everyone (we recommend ages 12 and up) on the planet sees this film! It really does a fantastic job of presenting a global picture of the effects that our plastic waste has on the environment...and inspires its viewers to take action!

    Below are photos of the Laudholm Beach stewards doing their part yesterday…
