We had a small group of volunteers cutting and burning invasive brush on the north shore of Maple Lake. This is a spot we've worked in the past, including a fun day of winter tree-thinning several years ago when we dropped the cut trees onto lake ice. A bit warmer in September, but a cool enough morning to kick off fall brushpile burns.
My thanks to Jim Dzialowy for pictures and his account of the morning.
Our Heart Your Park service day at Hidden Pond was rained out last Sunday and is rescheduled for Sunday October 9. We again plan to collect seeds of native plants from the prairie and welcome your participation.
