Work Day April 17 — Cork Wood and Brush Removal
April 17 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Dear MacKenzie Friends and Volunteers,
Resending this work day request from this past February when we had to cancel due to weather.
If you have been around the property this past Fall you would’ve seen a lot of trees and brush cleared by MacKenzie Staff, area DNR support and forestry contract workers (check out the bison road fence line). The Friends and volunteers supported contracted invasive cork tree removal earlier last year and we want to have a work day to keep the clean-up efforts moving – plus we have a few more in-kind work hours needed to fulfill our contribution goal with the Center’s forestry grant .
We have schedule Wednesday April 17th and a weather alternate Thursday April 18th – meet at the finishing house, 9:00am. We will be loading out brush and blocked logs, mostly for the burn pile and will likely need two chain saw operators to cut brush and size logs for handling. If we get enough volunteers Steven will try to get a second dump trailer to improve the work flow. Lunch will be around 12:30. Dress for the weather.
PLEASE PLAN ON JOINING US and be sure you reply to Don Lucke (firstname.lastname@example.org) for Both Date’s availability so he can keep you informed and confirm the date.
Thanks for all your support.
