On Saturday we worked along Ford Road, across from the old watchman's house, thinning trees. We lost a little time due to a leaking hose on the propane tank, a minor glitch overcome with paper, twigs, and matches. Big fires, lots of fun, and the last volunteers were out just ahead of sunset.
Sunday was all about honeysuckle, evil, detested honeysuckle,hacking and lopping on a hillside overlooking the wetlands by Visitation Trail.
What a beautiful place Cap Sauers is! If you can't make it to a workday, treat yourself to a hike out here.
Thanks to Meredith who came both days, to new volunteer Austin on Sunday, and to all the usual suspects including our dedicated core team, Atrium Landscape, and Friends of the Forest Preserves.
