WHEN: Saturday, January 21, 1 pm – 4 pm
WHERE: Spirit Springs Sanctuary, Marcellus Twp., Cass Co.
DETAILS: The “oak peninsula” is one of the loveliest corners of this preserve and we’ve been fighting to restore botanical diversity to its forest understory in recent years — with some great success. Tromp through the fallen leaves and amongst the blueberry bushes, while helping us to cut and haul the aggressive trees that compromise the biodiversity of this woodland.
BRING: Weather appropriate footwear and clothes, work gloves, and a favorite pair of loppers or saw if you have them (otherwise SWMLC will provide).
DIRECTIONS: From US-131, take Marcellus Highway/CR 216 west toward Marcellus. Head west for 2 miles, then take a left (south) on Bent Road. Bent Road will “T” into Dutch Settlement Road, where you’ll take a right (west). Go 2.3 miles down the road, you’ll come to the preserve on your right (north side of the road).
RSVP: RSVPs are always nice and it’s helpful for us to know that you’re coming so we can provide enough refreshments and tools for everyone. Please call our office (269-324-1600) by the Thursday before the workday to let us know you’re coming, to join the carpool, or to get directions — or email Mitch at lettow@SWMLC.org.

Hope to see you there!
