Categories No Categories
Get outside and help get rid of buckthorn and honeysuckle at Roche-a-Cri Woods SNA. Warm up your brush cutting arms and legs and help volunteers control invasive buckthorn and honeysuckle that are just starting to become established in portions of the floodplain forest. Many plants and animals found on this area are rare or absent across most of the Central Sand Plains. Preventing invasive plants from becoming widely established here will ensure these species continue to have a place to survive, in a place where they can be appreciated and looked-after by generations to come!
Directions: From the intersection of Cypress Avenue and Highway 13, travel East for approximately one-quarter of a mile to the parking area that will be to your right (at far edge of prairie).
What to Wear: Dress for the weather and wear clothes that are OK to get beat up, long pants, long sleeves, gloves (we will have extra),
sturdy footwear, safety glasses (we will have extra).
What to Bring: Pruners, loppers, and other hand tools for cutting brush are optional.
Cancellation or Rescheduling Plan: If the workday is cancelled, a message will be left at 608-577-7332 at least two hours prior to the event. If there is no cancellation message, the workday will continue as scheduled.
Contact/RSVP Info: Please contact Ben Bomkamp at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-577-7332 if you plan to come. But if you don’t get around to notifying, come anyway!
