Land Stewardship: Spring Workday – Dane County Chapter

March 23 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Ice Age Trail Alliance, Ice Age National Scenic Trail, Dane County Chapter, Prescribed Fire Briefing

*** 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 will likely be doing something awesome! We might still be cutting invasive brush and trees. However, spring is also prescribed burn season. Some of our workdays will be dedicated to preparing for burning by installing/updating burn breaks. Burns are weather- and other condition-dependent and take priority when they’re possible.

If the conditions are not right for burning, other activities open to all volunteers will be scheduled and posted as we get closer to each day.  This may include prepping an area to be burned.

In late spring, the focus will shift to controlling invasive species like garlic mustard and wild parsnip with pulling and spraying.

We’ll post the details for work days as soon as we know them; to get the latest information sent directly to you via email, contact Megan Schliesman (schliesfrau@gmail.com) and ask to be added to our Stewardship  email group. (Note: Megan cannot answer questions about workdays; she coordinates the list, not workdays.)  Emails sent on the listserv will contain all the details for a workday, and you should contact the listed leader for any given workday with questions.
