Come explore our Grey Rocks Conservation Area, just east of Hebron Village on North Shore Road! Grey Rocks is some of the most diverse and beautiful habitat that Newfound has to offer. Filled with wildlife and views, easily accessed by over a mile of foot trails and two secluded viewing platforms. Open from dawn to dusk for low-impact public use, Grey Rocks gets better with every visit.
Creating a Permaculture Vision for Grey Rocks
Permaculture mimics nature to build sustainable landscapes. NLRA is working with Resilience Planning and Design, LLC of Plymouth to restore the two-acre portion of Grey Rocks formerly developed as a marina.
WE WANT YOU to help us explore ecological restoration; boost biodiversity; create perennial food systems; and build hands-on learning opportunities. With your participation, Grey Rocks can become a national example for permaculture.
Meet the Permaculturists
On July 5 between 4 and 6:30 pm, come to Grey Rocks to tour the site and share your ideas with the Permaculture design team. Starting at 7:00 pm at the Red Barn in Hebron, there will be a workshop on Permaculture and Grey Rocks. This event is free but advance registration is recommended. The NLRA and Newfound Audubon are proud co-sponsors of this event.
SAVE THE DATE: On July 23, as part of NLRA’s Lake Week festivities at Grey Rocks, a draft design concept for Grey Rocks will be provided for additional input.
