Winter is the ideal time for controlling woody invasives. Snow cover offers relatively safe conditions for burning brush piles, and the cold temps prevent folks from overheating.
The goals of the HIP events include:
- Enhancing hikers’ experiences along the Ice Age Trail.
- Advancing the process of restoring native habitats by removing invasive species.
- Creating space for a variety of native plant species and wildlife to use these habitats.
We couldn’t preserve, restore, and maintain the land’s beauty without the help of so many dedicated volunteers.
