Dane – Mammoth’s Back

March 13, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

In the rapidly warming spring, there is still work we can do removing invasive trees and shrubs in our ecological restorations before the snow melts away completely.

On Saturday, March 13th we will continue work on the north slope of the Mammoth’s Back Preserve to clear the buckthorn, honeysuckle, red cedar, and some other trees to expand the cleared area of the hill.  If there is sufficient snow remaining on the north side of the hill, we will burn slash piles.  If the snow is all melted, we will make slash piles to burn next winter.   Wear cotton or wool outer layers — no synthetics that will burn from sparks thrown by the fires — in case we are able to burn slash piles.  Dress in layers and be prepared to bask in the strengthening sun.  Sawyers, please bring your saws.

MEET: 9:00 AM Saturday at the Mammoth’s Back access on the north side of Stagecoach Road in the Town of Cross Plains.

To participate, please register with me so I can have enough tools and herbicide, etc to use and be able to plan for enough work locations for everyone to be keeping “socially distanced.”  We will comply with the Dane County Health Order by observing social distancing and wearing masks when we are close together.

Thanks for your help and Happy “change of seasons – one slipping into the other!”
