A dozen students from Johnson College Prep joined us for another morning of stumping and cleaning a section that was only partially completed a year ago. They were a good group and a great help to us; we also had first-time Palos volunteer Desmond whom we hope to see again.
After a week of unsettled weather it was nice to have a morning with no issues, just a chance to get out and do some work. Thanks to all who participated.
Cap Sauers Holding Sunday June 2
This was another day to continue an earlier project, this one a hillside where we previously cut and dropped a large number of honeysuckles to be processed and burned later. Though a small crew we made good progress in cleaning this area.
Two years in a row now we've seen record rain totals for the month of May. We now are told to expect several sunny days in a row. Will this be the start of our usual June pattern of warmer, drier days? Stay tuned.
We encountered a large fallen oak on our walk in to Cap Sauers Sunday. In falling it also took a large limb from its neighbor, and there was other evidence of wind/storm damage along the trail.
