Roberts Property Clean-Up
Event Description: 
Join Bristol Parks, Recreation, Youth and Community Services (BPRYCS) and the Environmental Learning Centers of Connecticut (ELCCT) at Roberts Property on Saturday, April 15, 2023 to remove invasive species, including multi-flora rose and asiatic bittersweet, from 1.2 acres of the park in order to expand the habitat of the endangered grasshopper sparrow. 

In 2022, volunteers assisted BPRYCS and ELCCT in removing 1.3 acres of invasive species from Roberts Property. The efforts drastically improved the condition of the field and a new male Grasshopper Sparrow was found singing in the managed area in the summer of 2022.
