Dane County Goat Prairie Brush Control
September 12 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
This Saturday we will resume our summer work of removing re-invading shrubs from our prairie and oak savanna restoration on the slopes below and around the pasque flower and north savannas in the WDNR section of the Cross Plains Ice Age National Scientific Reserve (CPIANSR) while enjoying the summer blooming prairie wildflowers. We need help cutting the shrubs and herbiciding the cut stumps.
Bring work gloves, a face mask if you are using one, a sun hat, long-sleeve shirt, and plenty of water and food. We do observe “social distancing” etiquette. If you have a brush cutter please bring it.
The forecast is for pleasant cooler weather this weekend, but still bring plenty of water.
MEET: Saturday at 9:00 AM at the entrance gate to the WDNR section of the CPIANSR on the north side of Old Sauk Pass in the Town of Cross Plains.
Please let me know if you can help on on Saturday so I can be sure to have enough tools.
Please note that all Ice Age Trail volunteers will be covered under the National Park Service Volunteers-in-Parks program protections only if they fill out and sign a new Volunteer Agreement form. See the message from IATA Executive Director, Mike Wollmer, below explaining this new procedure with links to several documents to read and the filled Volunteer Agreement form to be submitted to the Park Service electronically. If you have not already done so, please fill out and submit the form to Dan Watson at the Park Service before participating in our workdays.
