Howard D. Colman Dells Nature Preserve’s Site Steward, Chris Reistter, wants you!
“Just letting people know about an upcoming volunteer opportunity. I will be out at Colman Dells (GPS -> 12749 N Weldon Road, Rockford Illinois 61102) on 2/3. NOAA say’s it’ll be 31 and a chance of snow on Saturday. This week’s low temps should make the grounds a little easier to traverse. If you plan to join please let me know if I should watch for you. Show up and sign in when ever you wish and stay as long as you’d like. I tell people 9:00 am – 3:00 pm is the usual start/stop time. As usual, if you plan to join please dress for winter conditions, bring a pair of work gloves, hand tools, a dry pair of socks and follow the pink trail markers from the parking lot down the hill, across the bridge and to the left (or follow the creek upstream if the trail markers aren’t noticeable) to the dells area where we have been working. Bring a lunch if you plan to stay past the noon hour. Any questions, contact me using either method listed below.
