Next Restoration Workday:  Sat, Mar 25, 1-4 PM

Dear Friends of the Broughton Nature Preserve,

Once again, we will have only one restoration workday this week:  Saturday, 1-4 PM.   The weather is warming up, and there will be rain earlier in the week.

We have almost finished clearing invasive trees and shrubs around the upper pond.  This will open the ground up to the sun–let’s see what comes up this spring….

Meet at the parking lot above the GWB Complex #3 (directions below). 

Dress for the weather!  Be sure to wear long pants, long-sleeve shirts and good boots.  We are working in some pretty overgrown areas and the trails will still be muddy.

We will provide tools, gloves, snacks and good company.

Hope to see some of you there!

Directions to GWB Complex #3:

  1. Enter the GWB Complex #3 off State Route 821.  It is the complex nearest the entrance/exit off of Interstate 77.
  2. Go up the hill to the first set of buildings.  Turn left.
  3. Proceed all the way to the end of these buildings.  Before you head down to the pond, turn right, and go all the way up the hill.  The road will take you past all of the buildings.  The road up the hill is a gravel road.
  4. Parking is on top of this hill.
