Little Plover River Workday

TO ALL:                 The Work Party has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 8th from Noon till 3:00 p..  It looks like the weather will not be an issue; but kindly check your emails after 12:00 Noon on Friday as that will be the last Alert should anything be changing.  The Work Detail remains as follows; 

Ø  We will assemble around 11:45 at the following parking area just South of the Little Plover River.  County Road R runs North & South from HWY HH to HWY B.  Coming in from B, you would drive North to the first T-Intersection which is Black Oak Drive.   Turn East and go about 100 yards and then turn North Across the field.  The parking area is on the Conservancy near the woods.   The ground is firm and you should see where cars have gone before.  

Ø  Our Conservation Club Volunteers will work with UWSP/CNR students to assemble and tie some tag alder bundles which will be installed in the stream at a later date.  You need not bring any power equipment as that will be handled by the Students.  Hand Loppers will be available.  Feel free to bring you own Loppers if you have them.  

Ø  No need to get into the stream at this point and the ground has sufficiently firmed with the colder weather. 

Ø  Over the past two Fridays, the Students have worked on some preliminary cuttings along the stream.  Professor Kyle Herman provided a report complete with pictures.    See below.  

Ø  You need not be an experienced “bundler”.   This will be a neat interchange with the Students.   There will be pictures and media interest for local Conservation Groups who provide the volunteers. 

Ø  Feel free to pass the word along and bring additional volunteers to the party. 

Ø  If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email or give me a call.  I look forward to seeing you on Saturday.  

Again, we thank you for your support.                   Jerry Knuth, Coordinating   (715) 340-5414 {c)
