Dear friends of the Broughton Nature Preserve,

Some new days and times for doing restoration work this week due to weather and schedule conflicts.

We will continue to remove invasives along the Red Trail towards the upper pond–meeting at the GBW Complex #3 (see directions below).

We will hold two workdays on

Wednesday 1 PM

Sunday from 2 PM

The weather looks good for both dates.  Wear good boots (it is often muddy) and sturdy pants and shirts.

We will provide the tools, gloves, snacks and good company!

Contact me if you have any questions.  (224.545.1604).

Mark K.

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.
