Linda is dragging buckthorn to the pile. Usually we drag bigger branches but she was cleaning up the remnants at the end of the day.

About

Explore the oak forest above the River Raisin while you help the Nature Conservancy cut the invasive shrub honeysuckle. The day will start with a wildflower walk in a different part of the preserve from where we will be working. This part of the preserve is not normally open to the public so this is your chance to see it. During the work you will get to learn the names of some of the plants and birds we see. Tools and boots will be provided. Snacks and cold drinks will be served at the end of the workday. For even more fun bring your friends!

We will meet by North Raisin Center Highway 0.2 miles south of the intersection of Ives Rd and N Raisin Center Hwy south of Tecumseh (put those road names in your GPS and go 0.2 miles south when your GPS says you have arrived). This is NOT by the big Nature Conservancy sign on Sutton Road but by the small temporary sign on Raisin Center Highway, the same place we have always met. North Raisin Center Highway is Evans Street in Tecumseh. If you are new, be sure you are at the meeting area by 8:50 because you will never find the work area otherwise. We will finish by 1 PM.
