Ottawa Bluffs Work Day


The  winter workdays in January, February and March will be brush and tree clearing, in addition to slash pile burning.  We will be working in the northwest corner of the preserve to thin out the savanna remnant.  The area also has a grove of European buckthorn re-sprouts which will need to be dealt with.  There is always plenty of work for another pair of hands, so please join us.

Winter Work Days

All workdays start at 10 a.m. and end around 3 p.m. Please bring a lunch, plenty of water, appropriate (sturdy) foot wear and work gloves. Leather gloves work best. Dress in layers. Rain, snow, or shine, we will be there!
