Dear Friends of the Broughton Nature Preserve,

We will be back in the field cutting invasives this Thursday and Saturday from 1-4PM.  We will continue to cut invasive shrubs along the Red Trail and around the Upper Broughton.  Last week we started clearing around an ephemeral wetland (I think) along the path.

Thursday, Feb 9, 1-4 PM

Saturday, Feb 11, 1-4 PM

Meet at 1PM in the parking lot about the GWB Complex #3 (directions below).  We will provide tools, gloves, good company and snacks.  The weather looks to be balmy on Thursday.  For sure wear good boots, it is always muddy!

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

Contact me if you have any questions.  (224.545.1604)

Cheers!  Mark
