Zoost Restoration Workday
June 1 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
This site may be small but it has a little bit of everything. Small woodland to the south, a large section of wetland in the middle and a patch of mesic prairie to the north. This is also our one and only property located in Lake County! We’d like to spend this day cleaning out the brush and dead fall in the small wooded lot at the southern corner.
Directions: From the intersection of 176 and River Road in Island Lake, continue southeast on 176 for 1 mile. Turn right (south) onto Roberts Road and continue for 0.6 miles. Turn left (east) onto Lamphere Road, and the property will be on the north side of Lamphere Road.
Nearest address: 4500 Roberts Rd, Island Lake –
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
