We had a mild, lovely morning with lots of foot traffic through the preserve (human and equine - see photos). With three sawyers and a group of willing haulers, four big fires were burning, two on either side of the trail.
This work is a foreshadowing of the 'big' play dates we have coming in January and February all around Palos.
Swallow Cliff Woods South Sunday December 17
We continue to push the wall of honeysuckle farther to the north, working our way down the hill towards the marshy patch. In addition to cutting brush we spread several bags of the seed collected back in September.
We'll be back on Christmas Eve morning to resume our relentless push. Join us if you can.
Black Partridge Woods Sunday December 17
We had a busload of students brought out by ICO from two city schools, Farragut High and Latino Youth High. What a great crew this was! They listened to our talk, picked up their tools, and cleared a large chunk of the sector we've been working on in the past year.
Thank you Katty Regalado and Sierra Club's ICO (Inspiring Connections Outdoors) for a most enjoyable and productive afternoon!
Happy Holidays to all from Palos Restoration Project!
