Dane – Prairie Moraine

February 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Last week we cancelled due to the cold weather, and it won’t be much better this week, BUT you’ve had plenty of time to get used to it by now.  SO – we’re going ahead with this an arctic blast frigidly cold super fun brush pile burning workday this Saturday, February 13, at Prairie Moraine!!

There are four big brush piles set up and ready to burn in the ravine area, with several good-sized trees nearby that will need to go.  Sawyers and swampers are both needed for this job.  There’s also some nearby brush that could be cut and piled but you’ll need to dig down a foot or more to find the base of it.

Meet: 9:00 a.m. at the main parking lot (not the smaller “Ice Age Trail” lot) at Prairie Moraine County Park.

It’s a short 10-minute walk to the work site.  The snow is deep but the trail there should be pretty well walked in already.  We’ll plan to work into the early afternoon, but you can stay as long as you’d like.  Bring food for lunch if you plan to stay on into the afternoon.

Wear natural (cotton or wool) outer layers for working because of burning embers. With the expected subzero temps at the start, wear a good pair of gloves to hike in and out with and plan to change them out for “work” gloves once we start working.  You live in Wisconsin – you know the drill!
