Wolf Oak Workday

March 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Wolf oak prairie 2

Join TLC for a restoration workday at the incredible Wolf Oak Woods! These workdays are hosted by our incredibly dedicated site steward, Pete Jackson. It’s hard for many of us to believe but thanks to the most amazing group of volunteers this side of the Mississippi, this could be the last day we need to wrap up the invasive clearing. After 5 years, your hard work and dedication uncovered all of the potential we speculated about at the time of the Wolf Oak’s acquisition and I just want to congratulate you all on what you’ve accomplished.

At this point the next steps would be to assess the density and diversity of the trees that remain and decide what, if anything, should be done in certain areas to encourage the next generation of oaks. Pete and I had some productive discussions about what we envision going forward and we both agree, it would be good to take a step back and see what Wolf Oak wants to be before making any big decisions. We had a successful burn there yesterday so I’m very excited to see what pops up in the next few weeks!

**Please keep an eye out for a cancellation email if we end up getting the forecasted rain.
