Irish Oaks Restoration Workday

September 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Let’s keep up the momentum we’ve had at these workdays and continue clearing the path towards the north west corner of Irish! We’ll have the mini skid out on this day so we can tackle some of the bigger trees as well. We’ve got a beautiful 60 degrees forecasted for today!

Directions: From Rt. 14 in Harvard, take Brink St east for 1.7 miles. Turn right (south) onto Schultz Rd and continue for 0.3 miles. Turn left (east) onto Lincoln Rd, and continue for 0.5 miles. The entrance to the site will be on the right (south) and is a gravel lane between a wooded fencerow and a hayfield. We’ll park at the kiosk and walk along the farm field.

Nearest address: 19017 Lincoln Rd Harvard

Long sleeves/pants – prevent scrapes and scratches from branches

Certain bug sprays and tucking pants into socks helps guard against ticks
