We had a successful morning planting trees at the preserve. While the number (80) is not in itself remarkable, the logistics of planting at three remote sites spread over a mile and not accessible by vehicle made for a challenging day.
We planted gaps along both sides of French Creek, an area near the Chief's Grove where we had earlier cleared invasive multiflora rose, and filled gaps in a hedgerow.
I am grateful to the twelve volunteers who made this possible: Stan, Isaac, Luke, Bob, Chad, Marvin, Aidan, Chris, Dave, Brian, George, and my wife Denise. I couldn't have done it without you!
I should mention that several of these volunteers have been coming out for our spring cleanups for more than a decade. That's a remarkable service. Thank you.
