Join us for a fun and friendly way to make a difference
Our 2nd workday of the year will be Saturday, April 4 on the Sugar River at the Falk/Wells Wildlife Area. We will be continuing our work from where we left off last fall. Hopefully all the snow will be gone by then. A map for this location can be found here: http://binged.it/1E5ECfU
When: Saturday, April 4, 2015 from 9 a.m. to Noon (Chapter Approved Sawyers please arrive at 8:30).
What: Box Elder, willow and invasive brush removal to benefit trout stream habitat, and burning brush piles. Also friendly camaraderie, donuts, coffee, hot cocoa and a chance to give back to the resource!
Where: The Falk/Wells Sugar River Wildlife Area. Take Hwy 69 south out of Verona. From the intersection of Hwy 151 & Hwy 69 drive 4.5 miles south toward Paoli, after crossing the Sugar River you will see a small parking lot on the east side of the road. You will see Sunset Rd just prior to getting to this area. (If you get to Paoli, you have gone too far south). [Map]
Bring: Rubber boots or waders if you have them as it could be a bit muddy. Also bring work gloves, wear work shoes/boots, loppers, and hand saws; otherwise the chapter has equipment you can use.
Parking: Park in the parking lot for the Falk/Wells Wildlife Area on the east side of the road.
If you have questions or think you can help, please contact Jim Hess (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can get a volunteer count estimate. We look forward to seeing you there!
