Next Steward Workday: Sat, Mar 11, 1-4 PM

Dear friends of the Broughton Nature Preserve,

We will have only one restoration workday this week:  Saturday 1-4 PM.   The weather is perfect for removing woody invasives.

Let’s meet at the parking lot above GWB Complex #3 (directions below).  We will continue our work along the Red Trail towards the upper pond.

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.
