The days are getting longer , the temperature is getting warmer, the birds are singing, and everything is turning green. It’s time for CLCF’s Annual Spring event. This event will not disappoint. There is something for everyone. The CLCF offices on Hwy 144 will be open as a central meeting place for all of the various events being held May 19th.
See the Even as it unfolded-
Below was the itinerary
Adopt-A-Tree— Due to the early Spring the seedlings we ordered from the DNR arrived early and we had to scramble and plant the trees quickly. Three hundred mixed conifers were planted on the Fox Hill (Moberly) property by a team lead by Jerry Gensch. Two hundred mixed conifers were planted on the north end of the Rolfs Nature Preserve by a team of Boy Scouts lead by an Eagle Scout candidate. Thank you to everyone who adopted trees, your donations are greatly appreciated. We are still taking donations from the flyers you received in the Spring Newsletter, or feel free to adopt at the event on May 19th.
Trail Maintenance – Please join trail-boss Jerry Gensch on the cross country ski trails at Fox Hill to perform routine trail maintenance/clean-up. Meet at the memorial rock on Hwy NN at 9am. Bring your own rake or shovel. Call Jerry at 644-6561 if you have any questions.
Birdhouse building and sale—10am-2pm; Have you ever looked at a bluebird house up close? Do you want one of your very own? An Awareness Committee member and a volunteer will be assembling birdhouses which can then be purchased. These houses are pre-cut and just need assembling. This is a great hands-on opportunity for children and parents to share.
Lunch—11am-2pm; In staying with CLCF Tradition, a hot dog lunch will be served for helpers, trail crews, and anyone else interested in stopping by at the CLCF Office. There will also be beverages and snacks available throughout the day.
Flower Swap/Garden Planting—Throughout the day; Do you have a green thumb or just like to get your hands dirty? You can help out our Awareness Committee plant the CLCF community vegetable garden. Have too many flowers or left-over perennials from thinning or rearranging your home or cottage, please bring them to CLCF for a flower swap exchange. Bring in your Daylilies, Hostas, or low maintenance Petunias or Impatiens for something else, or leave them at CLCF and they will be planted around the Zuern property.
This is a casual event. Please stop by anytime from 10am-2pm even if you are not participating in any of the events listed. Say HI to neighbors and fellow conservationists, take a stroll down our groomed trails and take in the beauty of spring in the Kettle Moraine.
