Dane Prairie, Savanna Weeding, Lodi Marsh SNA (kiosk)
July 14 @ 9:00 am
Our restored prairies and savannas require much attention, especially in their early years, to rid them of wild parsnip, yellow and white sweet clover, burdock, mullein, curly dock, Japanese hedge parsley and other invading exotics. There may be some infestations suitable for power brushcutters as well as hand work. Bring sturdy boots or shoes, long-sleeved shirt, long pants, gloves, brimmed hat, water, sun screen and insect repellant (for chiggers and perhaps mosquitoes). If operating power equipment, bring eye and ear protection as well or ask in advance if available.
We’ll be concentrating on sweet clover, parsnip and hedge parsley at this time of year, but there is plenty of sumac to cut with brush cutters if the herbaceous invaders don’t overwhelm us. Meet at kiosk lot on Lodi Springfield Rd (map/directions). We may drive some vehicles and gear closer to the work area from there if it’s not to muddy.
