Shear winds and tornadic activity ravaged the North and Central regions of Wisconsin on July 19 and July 20, 2019.
The areas hit the hardest by the storm were Polk, Langlade, and Waupaca counties. Hundreds of trees are down all along the Ice Age National Scenic Trail corridor. In a conservative estimate, well over 127 miles of Ice Age Trail was drastically affected by the storm.
The Ice Age Trail Alliance and its Chapters have been busy assessing damage. Small crews are already out on the Trail tackling the most immediate areas of need, however, more hands will help make light work of what will is shaping up to be a BIG job.
If you’d like to wield a handsaw or clippers, or otherwise help remove debris from the Trail, please register at the link below. In order to effectively organize crews and equipment, we’d like to know which county you’d be willing to travel to and which days of the week or weekend you’re available.
