Dane County Trail Corridor Clearing, Cross Plains
February 10 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
We now have the necessary land rights to build trail between Bourbon Rd on the south side of Cross Plains and Hwy P to the east. The next step is to clear invasive brush and unwanted trees so that we can build a sustainable tread for people to walk. We started two weeks ago and continue today! We’ll need properly equipped and trained chain sawyers, swampers to haul and pile the cuttings, and people to hand spray cut stumps with herbicide. We will not be burning the piles unless we have official participation from the village, so bring a lunch you don’t have to cook if staying into the afternoon. The meeting site is almost directly opposite the Cross Plains fire station. The path to the work area is mostly good trail through the Cross Plains Conservancy, but is quite steep in parts, so you may wish to bring your microspikes or yak tracks if conditions are icy.
