Savanna restoration near Wabasha, MN on August 20th
We'll be stacking brush and logs that have been cut by contractors as part of a restoration project funded through cost-sharing by the landowner with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.
August 20th (rain date of Aug 21st), 8:00 am to 2:00 pm
Join us at Tom Hunter's farm (23257 685th Street, Wabasha MN 55981) to help with a 30-acre savanna restoration project funded through cost-sharing by the landowner with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service. Most of the tree and brush cutting has been done by contractors but Tom could use some help with stacking the cut material.
If you'd like to help, bring decent footwear (boots would be best), gloves, insect repellent, sunscreen, plenty of water or sports drink to keep you hydrated, and snacks to keep you feeling energized during the workday.
Most of the work will involve stacking logs and limbs that have already been cut. However, there will probably be a need for some cutting to make logs and limbs smaller and easier to stack. If you have a chainsaw you could bring, along with fuel/oil as well as protective gear such as chaps and eye protection, feel free to do so.
If the weather forecast for August 20th doesn't look good the workday will be postponed to August 21st. If you'd like to help out on the 20th you'll need to RSVP (see below) so you'll get any updates about the workday being postponed to the 21st. If you're not available on the 20th but would be available for the 21st, you should RSVP for that as well so you can be notified of a postponed workday.
Please RSVP to Tom Hunter at [email protected] and let him know if you can make it. It's important to RSVP so you'll know if bad weather on the 20th results in the workday being postponed until the 21st.
