We had an active group at Paddock to cut brush near the site of our last couple sessions there. A true treat to have our long-time friend Doug and daughter Kanohi again!
With a pair of brushcutters and a pair of chainsaws we got a lot of cutting and burning done. At some point Margaret stumbled across an old deer antler that I suspect was one we found, and left, a short distance away more than two years ago. Much nibbling and weathering was evident, see pictures below. Great job by all present!
Swallow Cliff Woods South Sunday November 24
We had another great group Sunday, with 16 volunteers and three chainsaws, as well as first-time Palos volunteers Cai, Iman, Nouha and Jajuan.
In the middle of our work site sat a terrible tangle of honeysuckle, multi-flora rose, buckthorn, and others. Numerous fallen trees added to the difficulty in navigating this area. Our volunteer team ably cleared a big chunk of ground through the center of this mess. Sunlight will now reach the ground in places where it's been more a rumor than a reality.
