Cap Sauers Moraines Saturday October 21
At Cap Sauers we had 25 scouts and leaders from BSA Troop 216, plus more than a dozen additional volunteers. We cut and burned brush above a wetland, moving farther than Margaret had hoped and breaking through the wall of brush below the trail. We look forward to working again with Troop 216, an excellent and well-led group.
Swallow Cliff South Sunday October 22
We spent Sunday morning whacking honeysuckle and buckthorn near the parking lot and yellow trail. Five new volunteers, including four from Lewis U (three fraternity members from Phi Iota Alpha among them), were among the 12 who helped.
Our thanks to everyone who came out for their energy and commitment!
Palos Park Woods South Wednesday October 25
The regular Paddock Wednesday moved to Palos Woods South where we hosted 42 freshmen from Noble Street College Prep in Chicago. They were a cool group and did a lot of brush cutting and burning with us. Thanks also to Laura, Fran, Diane, and Jake for their help with the students.
