We don't get to Paw Paw too often, always a pleasure when we do. It is one of the oldest nature preserves in Illinois and features wonderful topography, with high bluffs and steep ravines.
On this Saturday it also featured four student-athletes from Oak Lawn Community High School, numerous other volunteers, and the return of brush-cutting, power tools, and brush pile burns to Palos as the fall season kicks off. While some might miss snipping weed heads, most seemed quite content with the day's activities.
On the coming weekend we bring September in with a full slate of activities at Paddock Woods on Saturday, McClaughrey Springs and Cap Sauers Holding on Sunday.
