This is our major forest restoration event! We plan to coordinate 10 volunteer sawyers from Oregon and other parts of Dane County. APF members and community volunteers are needed to move brush and create/manage bonfires.
Led by two Dane County Parks staff, we will make a major impact on invasive trees like buckthorn. We are about 18 months from the completion of Phase 1 of our 5-year project. Phase two includes restoring the forest with native understory trees and shrubs.
Please arrive at 8:50 a.m. in the 914 Union Road Parking Lot. We start immediately at 9:00 a.m.
Why do we go after buckthorn so vigorously in the winter? Go to YouTube to view this short 3-minute tutorial:
