Special Community Workshop:  “Lawns and Lobsters: Environmentally Safe Lawn Care,” hosted by the Falmouth Conservation Commission, part of the Changing Landscapes, Shifting Tides: The Story of Falmouth Event Series 

This FREE workshop on environmentally safe lawn care will take place at the Portland Country Club. Everybody is welcome: homeowners, students, condo residents, retail businesses, and landscapers. Because all of Falmouth drains into Casco Bay, everything we put on our lawns affects lobsters, fish, and clams. Learn about this intricate relationship and the significant role yardscapers can play in preserving our natural resources.

Speakers include:

  • Jami Fitch from the Cumberland County Soil and Water Conservation District
  • Chip Osborne from Osborne Organics in Massachusetts
  • J. B. Christie from the Portland Country Club.

There will be displays by Skillins, Allen Sterling & Lothrop, Friends of Casco Bay, Maine Audubon, Falmouth Parks and Community Programs, and the Falmouth Schools. Refreshments will be served.

Changing Landscapes, Shifting Tides: The Story of Falmouth Event Series is presented by Stantec and partially funded by a grant from the Maine Humanities Council.
