Winter Workday: Saturday,  Nov. 9, 2019

9 a.m. — 12 p.m., CST

This workday will be the first of several winter workdays to remove select tree saplings with the “Hack and Squirt” method, by girdling with hatchets (the “hack”) and applying herbicide to prevent re-growth (the “squirt”).

There will be a short hike through the prairie to reach the work-site. We will provide protective equipment such as gloves and safety glasses.

Meet at the main office at 3294 N US 41, Morocco, IN 47963. Contact Tony Capizzo to RSVP and for more information, acapizzo@tnc.org
