Pleasant Bluff Work Day, December 8, 2019

Prairie Enthusiasts - don't forget that you're welcome to join the Minnesota Driftless Chapter of The Prairie Enthusiasts for a workday from 9:00 to 3:00 on Sunday, December 8th. Everyone is welcome to participate and contribute to this important work.

The work site will be a bluff prairie overlooking Pleasant Valley just outside of Winona, MN (most of the terrain will be steep). Participants can assist with clearing trees and shrubs, and piling the cut logs, limbs, and branches. This was the site of several workdays last winter and this winter, and our work on April 6th represents the last remaining chunk that the MD TPE is responsible for.

From the Homer Road (CR 15) on the southeast edge of Winona, turn south on Pleasant Ridge Road (CR 25). Pleasant Ridge Road turns east and runs along the base (south side) of the bluff prairie where the work will be conducted. Follow this link to a dropped pin on Google maps showing the location of the site. Please park on the road shoulder on the bluff-side of Pleasant Ridge Road.

Participants will be able to pile cut brush and treat cut stumps. Participants who are skilled in the safe use of gas-powered brush cutters and chainsaws can bring those as well but will need to bring their own gas and oil.

Please wear durable work clothes that will keep you warm, including work gloves and boots. Cotton and wool clothing will be necessary if helping to burn piles of cut brush. Participants should also bring food and water to last them through the work period.

For more information, please contact Gabe Erickson by phone (507-458-3684) or email ([email protected]). Many thanks to Gabe for the accompanying photo.
