Volunteer Stewardship Days at Burr Oak VP are Sat/Jan 6 and Mon/Jan 8
Messages from Zach and Ed:
Sat., Jan. 6 we’ll be out and seeding at our restoration areas in the north portion of Burr
Oak Valley. Please see the details below- we do hae a brush pile that we can light off to stay warm. We’re excited about completing another phase of our restoration- really a culmination of a lot of people’s efforts so far. Thanks so much to those of you have been helping out and I hope to see some of you on Saturday or Monday! — Zach Grycan, Cell:(920)912-4338
Greetings everyone! The time has come to plant our prairie! This coming Saturday, January 6th, looks to be a perfect opportunity for it: we have snow on the ground, and fresh snow predicted to fall on Sunday. I am currently unsure whether we will be able to secure a fertilizer spreader, so there may end up being a lot of seeding to be done be hand. If that’s the case, we may have to break this up over several days. Either way, we could use as many hands as possible! We’ll get rolling at 9 AM at the Elevator Road entrance. High temp predicted to be 12 F, so b
undle up. I’ll be bringing some hot drinks to keep us warm. Our second work day will fall on Monday, January 8th. Depending on how much we accomplish on Saturday we will either be seeding again or clearing brush. The
weather looks a little more comfortable, but still chilly. As usual, we’ll meet at 9 AM off Elevator Road (park in lot at 7404 Elevator Rd., Cross and Crown Church). Hope to see you out there! –Ed 815-601-4665.
