Work Plan:  This opportunity is open to all chapter members who wish to participate.  Firebreaks are being prepared with the intent of burning at Clymer Meadow in a few weeks.  The calendar above is for scheduled activity.  There may be other opportunities as needs arise.

Assistance is needed with the following:

  1. Backpack blowing – To be clear, this is miles of blowing dry vegetation from a 20 ft wide mowed line.  The backpacks are about 20 pounds and the walking is easy and over mostly smooth ground.  These will be 4-hour shifts.
  2. Seed collection – Harvesting seed from multiple prairie locations that comprise the “meadow”
