Volunteers - December 2014
by Pam Holy ©
"Acquire, restore, preserve and manage prairie lands in the Chiwaukee
Prairie - Carol Beach area of Kenosha County, Wisconsin which include rare,
endangered and threatened species, lands with natural diversity, and viable
self-sustaining ecological communities as well as to promote the
conservation education of its members and the general public."
Saturday, January 17 Work
The December workday was highly productive and fun, as promised! Using an
easier method to apply herbicide allowed volunteers to treat much more brush
than with the old method. It also helped that there was no snow cover. This
Saturday, and until the sap starts running, we will again be cutting and
treating invasive brush.
The combined efforts of volunteers and grant supported contractors are
transforming the Chiwaukee landscape from shrub land to prairie!
Please join us!
The monthly workday is from 10 AM to 1 PM. As always, we will provide tools
and gloves. The weather prediction for Saturday is a high of 38 degrees with
a brisk SW breeze. Melting snow may make boots a good idea.
We meet at
121st Street on Al Krampert Trail
