Margaret and company cut brush and burned at Cap Sauers, with two brushcutters going at least for a portion of the day. They were joined by a family group memorializing a recently departed loved one. Buckthorn and arrowwood viburnum were the main targets of this workday.
Paddock Woods Wednesday August 23
By Wednesday it was cooler and less humid, making it far easier to burn brush. We had two fires and disposed of another huge amount of cut brush. Thanks to first-time volunteer Lance and our usual, incredible Wednesday Paddock people.
The popping, sizzling sound of brush added to the fire reminded several volunteers of the sound of breakfast cooking - bacon and pancakes on a hot griddle. I guess we were hungry. So next week we will cook lunch at day's end to celebrate Bob Schwaan becoming workday leader at Paddock Woods.
