Concannon Conservation Area Restoration Workday

September 28, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

It’s been a while since we’ve had a workday at this site so let’s show some love to the small but promising Concannon Conservation Area! For this workday I’d like to focus on cleaning up the roadside edges where there are lots of invasive trees and shrubs blocking the sunlight and beautiful view. Clearing up the edges will make it much easier for us to manage invasives when we come back during the growing season.

Directions: From the intersection of 47 and 14 on the south side of Woodstock, head north on 47 for 0.4 miles. Turn left (west) onto Southview Dr and continue for 0.2 miles. Take the first left (south) onto Edgewood and park. You should be able to see our signs.

Address: 1913 Edgewood Dr, Woodstock, IL 60098

Sawyers Welcome!
Are you an experienced sawyer looking to help out at one of our workdays? Great!
We just ask that you demonstrate, to either myself or Mr. Ducci, your ability to follow safety procedures
when felling and bucking a tree at the start of the workday. All sawyers must bring their own gear
including: saw, fuel, bar oil, chaps, hearing and eye protection.
Tips to make your workday experience safe/enjoyable:
Bring plenty of water – better to bring too much than too little!
Sturdy boots are best or old tennis shoes will do too
Leather gloves or gardening gloves, an extra pair in the winter is a good idea
Long sleeves/pants – to prevent scrapes and scratches from branches
Hat – to protect your noggin and beautiful hair from flying embers
Sunglasses or eye protection
Feel free to bring loppers if you’ve got them — be sure to label them
