Greenhead Trap Volunteers

Greenhead Traps

The green head traps that the HTA ordered have been delivered. HTA VP Tom Beaty and Trustee Bill Hutson will be placing the traps in the marsh on Saturday, May 18, 2013 at 9:00 am. This work should take about two hours. We need about 6 or 8 strong volunteers to help out. Volunteers will meet at the west end (bay end) of McKinley Avenue. If you can help out, please let us know. One trap will be set out in front of Bowker’s Deli as a model for those looking to purchase one for their own property or one to donate to the Association and the community. Each trap costs $135.00. Thanks for your help in this regard.
