Super enthusiastic, super large group of volunteers today, so many of them first-timers. We had a group from REI Oakbrook Terrace, several Whitney Young HS students with parents, and a good number of other volunteers both new and regulars.
All chose to come to Willow on a cool and lovely fall morning to cut honeysuckle and wrestle with that nasty nemesis, multiflora rose. Thanks to everyone for a great day!

This was another excellent group, due in large part to Amy Reeter and geo-cachers who accompanied her. They also worked with us a year ago at Willow Springs Woods and are welcome to return any time.

We got wet on this one! A soaked-to-the-bone, cowering beneath trees for shelter, so glad it's not cold today, kind of wet. We were fortunate to already have big fires burning and able to survive 10-20 minutes of steady rain. We got a lot burned off and by quittin' time were starting to dry out.
