We were at Willow West for this one, right along the cemetery fence clearing some seriously chunky buckthorns. A light dusting of snow added winter ambiance to the scene. Thanks to first-time Palos volunteers Mara and Dave for joining us on our final restoration day of the year.
We accomplished much in 2018 and plan to keep our momentum going in the new year. After this weekend we'll be thinning trees on Saturdays, while Sundays will be geared more toward woody brush removal with some light tree thinning mixed in.
Each volunteer visit is a blessing and we are grateful every time someone carves a few hours out of their day to support our efforts. It truly does make a difference!
