The work day for this Saturday is still on. The forecast is for rain off and on during our time period. If the weather prevents us from clearing willows, we will concentrate our efforts with helping the Black Earth Creek Watershed Association with cleaning up Black Earth Creek.
Saturday, April 25, 2015 Workday
Join us for a fun and friendly way to make a difference
Our next workday of the year will be this Saturday, April 25 on Black Earth Creek along the Wolf Run Trail.
When: Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 9 a.m. to Noon (Chapter Approved Sawyers please arrive at 8:30).
What: Our mission for this workday will be two-fold:
Some of us will be assisting the Black Earth Creek Watershed Association with their annual Earth Day clean-up event. Volunteers will walk along the Wolf Run Trail and collect trash and other debris into plastic bags that will be provided.
The rest of us will be removing willows and invasive brush to benefit trout stream habitat and provide access to the stream.
Also friendly camaraderie, donuts, coffee, and a chance to give back to the resource!
Where: Driving west from Madison on Highway 14, you will pass Wisconsin Heights High School and Rookies. Turn left (south) on Wolf Road. Wolf Road is on the south side of the intersection of HWY 14 and HWY 78 North.
Bring: Rubber boots or waders if you have them as we will be working on both sides of the creek. Also bring work gloves, loppers and hand saws; otherwise the chapter has equipment you can use.
Parking: Drive down Wolf Road and slowly past Fred Wolf’s garage and home. Park at the bottom of the hill in the field near the wood piles. Please do not drive on the bike trail.
