Restoration Workdays Feb 2 & 4

Dear Friends of the Broughton Nature Preserve,

Looks like perfect weather for removing invasive shrubs:  cold and not raining or snowing!

Once again, we will meet both days at the parking lot above GWB Complex 3# (see directions below) and hike out to the upper pond.

Thursday:  1-4 PM

Saturday:  1-4 PM

We are continuing to clear out around the upper pond and along the red trail leading to it.

Dress for the weather–especially good boots as it is still muddy.  We will supply the tools, good company and snacks!

Any questions, please reach out to me.  224.545.1604.

Please feel free to share this e-mail with other folks.  


Mark Krivchenia
