Cheers to a Successful Weeding and Wine Event Series

With fall rounding the corner, we bid farewell to long summer evenings, prairies in bloom and abuzz with pollinators, and weed pulling activities. It’s sad for all of us. As the days grow shorter, we can think back to the sunsets shared on Picnic Hill to get us through the darkness of winter.

Thank you to the 40 volunteers who contributed 142 hours in our first year of the Weeding & Wine Wednesday volunteer event series. Their dedication through rain or shine and positive attitudes made this season a great success.

Land Stewardship: Brush Cutting, Cross Plains Reserve – 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

While weeding is mostly done, we shift to cutting invasive brush. The work involves pulling remaining weeds by hand and using brush cutters. Come join us for the entire day, or a few hours.

What to Bring

You should have long pants, a long-sleeve shirt (wild parsnip shouldn’t touch bare skin), 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.

Volunteer Service Agreement
