We were scheduled for Cap Sauers the preceding day but Margaret had to cancel after two rounds of rain moved through the area. She planned to collect seed and rain literally throws a damper on that task.
So a small group came to McClaughrey on Sunday, cutting brush near recent work areas (relying on Doug Bosco's FB post as your correspondent was out of town). Doug was on brushcutter, ending a two-month plus hiatus and no doubt making him happy. No burning on this day, cut-and-drop.
Soon, however, we will return to cut and burn sessions. Not this weekend, with one weed day and one seed-collecting day planned, but soon after that. Depends on the weather and the stewards.
Redgate Woods Trailblazers Walk Thursday August 18
This walk was led by Martha, a volunteer with a keen interest in history, and focused on the original Argonne Laboratory site at Redgate Woods. Fascinating stuff! After hearing the history we hiked to Site M, where the old reactor is buried. Quite the enjoyable and informative time.
