Swallow Cliff Woods South, Sunday November 19
Another super turnout here - 23 people total? Several of the younger volunteers were from Whitney Young HS, but numerous other schools represented here and at Partridge later in the day: Back of the Yards College Prep, Lewis U, Hinsdale Central, and Lincoln-Way East. Apologies for any I may have missed.
With all of this help, we spread out on the work site, creeping to the north and the brushy slope that's been a target since starting here nine months ago. It's opened up well, starting to look like the managed section south of the trail.
Black Partridge Woods, Sunday November 19
Sunday afternoon we had several more students and parents from Whitney Young HS. They helped expand the spot we've worked in recent months, while we also burned two months accumulation of brush from workdays when conditions didn't allow burning.
Thanks to Jim and Bob on chainsaw, and a special shout-out to Stephanie, Alex, and Kathy who made both the morning and afternoon sessions.
