*** 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

May is the month or so we have to control and reduce garlic mustard, burdock, Dame’s Rocket, Japanese Hedge Parsley, and other herbaceous weeds that are invading our oak woodlands. Our preferred method to control these invasives is by herbiciding the plants that have not been killed by our spring burns. We do this work using backpack sprayers to apply a herbicide. On each of the weekends and some weekdays of May we will scan our various preserves searching for the plants we want to eliminate. No prior experience is required to do this work.

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. 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.

Volunteer Service Agreement

Land Stewardship: Savanna Restoration, Holmes Preserve – Dane County Chapter

*** 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

Several weeks ago we cleared most of the honeysuckle thicket adjacent to the Ice Age Trail leading to the Millennium Prairie in the Holmes Preserve.  Help us finish removing this thicket and reveal the magnificent “mother oak” on the crest of the hill.  While you are helping enjoy the warmth of the fires watch for soaring eagles, cranes, and hawks and returning bluebirds in the crisp winter air. No prior experience is required to do this work, but you must let me know you will help so that we have enough tools to use.  We will need qualified sawyers with chainsaws and PPE for the workdays.  We will also need help with cutting the smaller shrubs with loppers, herbiciding the cut stumps, and burning the slash piles that we made earlier this winter.

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.
