Conservation Project on October 26th

posted Oct 17, 2012, 7:49 PM by Troop Leaders


I have scheduled a Conservation Project to help benefit an Oak Savannah at Mukwonago County Park on Friday, October 26th. The Conservation Project will involve clearing downed debris (logs/tree limbs) and moving them into piles at designated areas, in order to control invasive species that infest the Oak Savannah. A controlled burn is necessary to kill the invasive species' seed pods/plants. The debris needs to be removed so the controlled burn does not get out of hand. Necessary items for the work day include work gloves, appropriate clothing for the weather, closed toed shoes/hiking boots, a full water bottle, bagged lunch and PANTS!

On Friday, October 26th, all levels of Mukwonago Area Schools and even East Troy Public Schools have no school, due to a Teacher's Inservice Day. The work day will begin at 9:00 a.m. (sorry C.J.) and conclude at 1:00 p.m. All volunteers should meet at Picnic Area One. From there, we will hike to the work site, in a remote area of the County Park. More specific details will be distributed to committed volunteers at a later date/on the day work is to be conducted. At 1:00 p.m. all volunteers will stop work and eat their lunch packed from home.

All family and friends are welcome to volunteer. The more volunteers we have, the more we can accomplish in the 4 hour period. If you are interested in volunteering, please reply to me/call me/talk to me before the work day. Contact information is as follows:
