Crowley Oaks Restoration Workday

August 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Larry for another restoration adventure at Crowley Oak Woods! Restoration has been occurring on this 80-acre tract since the winter of 2020 and we’re making great progress clearing the brush from the highest quality areas of the preserve. We’ve still got the cooler weather this week which always makes these days even more enjoyable.

Directions: From the intersection of 173 and 14 in Harvard, head east on 173 and continue for 3.2 miles. Turn left (west) on Crowley Road, and continue for 0.2 miles. The site will be to the north, and you may park along the road. If you’ve got a rugged vehicle, feel free to drive back on the lane.

Nearest address: 18725 Crowley Rd. Harvard
