Another special thanks to Kathy and Dave Branigan for doing the same kind of evangelizing at the Lake Katherine Nature and Arts Festival on the same day.
Each contact that we make, each person we engage, helps inform the public about the incredible resource we have in our local preserves, and the need for public support to keep our efforts going and growing.
Willow Springs Woods Saturday April 28
Joe had a large and active group helping clear brush at Willow Springs, including the Evergreen Park High School Science Club who join us regularly.
They worked near the ruins of an old farmhouse (?), a hint of the history of the land before it became a preserve. Much invasive brush got cut and burned, great job by all who attended!
Brush-cutting season is winding down - with spring flowers popping and birds nesting, the focus soon shifts to our stalwart foe, garlic mustard. Too soon to tell how big a year THAT devil will have, stay tuned...
