medway_decides_posterMedway Decides

On Saturday, October 29th from 10 am to 3:30 pm, there will be voting for the projects submitted for the City’s “Medway Decides” pilot project.

A number of ideas from our area have been submitted. City staff are working on the feasibility of ideas and will decide which will be up for a vote.

Adopt an ESA – Medway Valley Heritage Forest ESA

The City of London’s Adopt an ESA program is hosting an educational, ecological restoration workshop for Adopt an ESA volunteers.

If you wish to attend please RSVP via email at

Please also cc Sandy Levin so that he can put you down as interested in volunteering. In the spring, we will set out to pull garlic mustard, an invasive non-native species in our part of the Medway.

Ruth Walton and Patti Prieur did a great job initiating adoption of our part of the ESA. It is now time for others to step forward and take the torch from them. We need people to do two events in 2017 such as pulling garlic mustard. If you are interested, and can’t make the upcoming event, let Sandy know.
