We had only one scheduled restoration day last weekend, and that was canceled due to rain and soggy groud. We DID have a handful of people at Hidden Pond, clearing some hazard trees from a work site where 24 students from Shepard High School in Palos Heights will volunteer Sunday October 14.
Thanks to Dennis Kankowske and John Plunkett for coming, with chainsaws, to knock down these troublesome trees. Thanks to Doug Bosco for coming on short notice, to help haul and burn said trees, and to steward Mary Busch for organizing and leading the work.
Oaks and Brews Thursday October 4
This was a public talk at Imperial Oak Brewing in Willow Springs. My thanks to all who listened as we extolled the virtues of volunteering in the preserves, and to all who came to support the event.
Little Red Schoolhouse Arts and Crafts Fair, Sunday October 7
Carolyn, Kathy, and Ginger all helped promote our activities with shoppers at this fair and we had some good conversations and encouraging words of support for our activities. I've tabled here for a number of years now this was a good day.
