We had quite the productive day despite having to shift gears at the start. With two chainsaws and two brushcutters running we had an abundance of cut brush to haul and burn. Relatively dry conditions and ample wind made it easy to get the fires going and keep 'em burning.
Paw Paw Woods Native Shrub ID Sunday March 3
Stewardship aides Teri Radke and Cyndi Duda started this class with an hour in the field near Maple Lake viewing a variety of native shrubs, then moved indoors to Little Red Schoolhouse, a good move on a cold breezy morning. There we viewed numerous twigs and buds, getting a wealth of good information and insight. Thanks Teri and Cyndi!
Cap Sauers Holding Sunday March 3
In February we didn't burn at Cap so we had an abundance of cut brush awaiting us. By afternoon's end we had all of it on the fire and Patrick continued to cut and add more fresh stuff. This area, up high on a hill above the treail and wetland, continues to open up with each visit. It will lok sensational come growing season.
