Tryon Grove Restoration Workday
August 10, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
For this workday we’ll continue working on the southeast section of woods. There’s still a lot of buckthorn, bittersweet, and honeysuckle in this area along with a new foe called porcelain berry. It’s a vining invasive and has a destructive tendency to climb and slowly choke any vegetation it comes into contact with so it’s important to stop its spread as early as possible. We’ll probably only need part of this day to finish clearing the woodland edge before we get back to working on the interior!
Directions: the property is located off of Barnard Mill Road 4.1 miles west of Ringwood, or 1.1 miles south of Tryon Grove Rd. Turn onto Oak Hill Drive, which can be difficult to spot. You can pull over on the side of Oak Hill Drive and we will walk to the site from there. Walk down the first gravel driveway, and then follow the mowed trail to the site. Listen for the chainsaws once you get to the woods. An ATV will be available for transport if weather conditions allow.
Nearest address: 6519 Oak Hill Dr, Richmond Township, IL 60071
