Dane County Chapter – Savanna Clearing, Restoration

November 24 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Ice Age Trail Alliance, Ice Age National Scenic Trail, Dane County Trail Improvement Day, #OptOutside, #REI

We’re looking forward to this opportunity to #OptOutside with you in the days following Thanksgiving!

We will be cutting invasive brush and trees with chainsaws and hand tools, treating stumps and burning brush piles near the Ice Age Interpretive Site along the Cross Plains Segment just off of Old Sauk Road. This type of trail maintenance work helps native species thrive come spring and creates a beneficial habitat for wildlife including birds, bees, and butterflies.

If you are a certified chainsaw sawyer and own personal protective equipment (PPE), please bring it.  If you ‘re not certified to operate a chainsaw, but own PPE, you may bring it so you can work in tandem with a certified sawyer.

I will provide herbicide and loppers. Please bring work gloves and wear long sleeves to protect against the brush.

If you plan to stay all day, please bring drinking water and some lunch.  I will provide some food/drinks to share for lunch, including brats to cook on the fire.

Feel free to come if you can stay only part of the day. Please RSVP so I have enough tools with me.
