Dane County Chapter – Land Stewardship: Prairie Weeding, Anderson Prairie
June 26 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
*** Since these events are posted in advance, you NEED to contact the posted workday leader to make sure the workday location or details have not changed. ***
As our removal of Garlic Mustard and spraying resprouting shrubs winds down, we move into the next phase of summer work – yellow clover and wild parsnip removal. Some of this work is done pulling weeds by hand, and while some will involve using brush cutters. If you are interested in pulling weeds by hand, you should have long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, gloves, and sturdy boots (you don’t want wild parsnip to touch bare skin). If you are are interested in using the chapter’s brush cutters, you MUST RSVP (so we have the equipment) and you need long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, gloves, sturdy boots and hearing protection.
Please let me know if you can help us with any of these activities. No prior experience is required to do this work, but I need to know who can help so that we have enough equipment to use.
I will send confirmations and details of when and where to meet to those of you who can help.
Please RSVP to confirm that you can help, to make sure we have enough equipment. Tom Gross 608-347-5154
