The Slobs at Colhoun Meadow (off Davenport Ridge Rd.)


Once again the New Canaan High School Service League of Boys (SLOBs) have been a tour de force contributing over 40 hours of collective work at the Land Trusts Colhoun Meadow & Woodlands off Davenport Ridge Road. The 21 acre Colhoun parcel along the Stamford border was gifted in 1974 and acts as one of the gateways to scenic New Canaan.

Land Trust Steward Haik Kavookjian noted that "the guys worked in a very coordinated fashion which  allowed much to be done. For openers 3 bags of trash were collected along Davenport Ridge and the entire field was de-vined which was no small task.  All the windfall log debris by the field margins was stacked into over 6 wildlife brushpiles. The guys and dads collected over 2 yards of field stone for the future wall rebuilding and three white pines were transplanted to shield the neighboring property on the SE corner of the field. Finally, two blue bird houses were relocated away from the new parking area.  All-in-all, a job well done in service to the Land Trust and the residents of New Canaan."
