We cut brush along the back side of Boomerang Slough Saturday - when we started the water was not discernible from our vantage point.Honeysuckle, bittersweet, viburnum, multi-flora rose, we had plenty to choose from. Even a balky chainsaw didn't prevent our clearing a decent stretch along the shoreline.
Thanks to first-time Palos volunteers Kenneth, from Whitney Young HS, and dad Scott. Is this the start of another round of Whitney Young bio students? Sure hope so...
McClaughrey Springs Woods Sunday October 6
Our numbers were increased by a couple of scouts with parents as Diana and company cut and burned honeysuckle. While I missed this one - off at Little Red Schoolhouse (see below), this was an absolute perfect day to spend outdoors.
Little Red Schoolhouse Arts & Crafts Fair Sunday October 6
This was the 54th edition of this event We encountered some old friends and supporters and hope we made some new ones. Such a beautiful day!
Big thanks to Dave Branigan, Maureen Neidle, and Kathy Bruch for helping, and to Margaret Tobin for driving over to do the same.
