Land Stewardship: Oak Woodland Restoration, Anderson Preserve – Dane County Chapter

February 21 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Ice Age Trail Alliance, Ice Age National Scenic Trail, Dane County Chapter, Winter Workday

*** You MUST contact the posted workday leader listed below to make sure the workday location or details have not changed, as these events are posted in advance. ***

Description

We are now cutting the invasive shrubs — honeysuckle, buckthorn, and others — in our several prairies and oak savannas along the Ice Age Trail through Dane County.  Help us cut and remove these shrubs in the savannas.

What to Bring

You should have long pants, a long-sleeve shirt, gloves, sturdy boots, and whatever water and food you want for the day. While running a brush cutter you also need head and hearing protection. Sunscreen and insect repellent are optional but advised.

RSVP

You must RSVP with the work day organizer (listed below) so we have enough equipment and we can make sure all volunteers for the day have up-to-date information about meeting location.
