Dane County Chapter – Savanna/Oak Woods Restoration

December 7 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Park in the upper dog-exercise lot. We’ll drive a few cars with gear back to the tower site and hike in from there.

We will continue a clearing project in the far NW corner around the big kettle ponds. Operation Fresh Start has worked for several years on this and we are close to finishing.

We will be cutting invasive brush and trees with chainsaws and hand tools, treating stumps and burning brush piles. If you are a certified sawyer (chainsaw) and own personal protective equipment (PPE), please bring both.  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.

Please bring work gloves and wear long sleeves to protect against the brush. If you need work gloves or protective eye glasses, let me know. We originally planned to burn several brush piles, but the weather is not cooperating- it’s too dry and warm and burning is currently prohibited in parks.

If you plan to stay all day, please bring drinking water and some lunch.  I will provide some treats, too.
