TCS’s “Brentlemen” Helping to Restore Significant Wildlife Habitat

Never too young to make a difference - these students are taking action to protect a local ecosystem and wildlife habitat.

The students of Brent House at Trinity College School (TCS) better known as Brentlemen, spent a Sunday this past Fall working on habitat restoration at Northumberland Land Trust’s Laurie Lawson Outdoor Education Centre.

The property contains several vernal ponds (those that fill up in the spring) which serve as an important habitat and breeding location for many frogs, salamanders and other aquatic species.  Armed with pitchforks, wheelbarrows, rakes, shovels and work gloves the Brentlemen cleared debris from earlier tree clearing activities from one of the Education Centre’s main vernal ponds.
