A short walk in to Willow West? Lovin' it! At the south end near the cemetery fence, we burned a huge amount of buckthorn from a past workday and added more brush and logs cut that morning. Thanks to Dennis and Bob for coming from 'the other side of 55' with chainsaws to help, and thanks also to Adam, Ebony, and Bria from FOTFP for their tremendous assist.
It was truly a productive day and everyone there worked hard to make it so.
