Riverland Conservancy seeking volunteers to work on oak savanna restoration

Outdoor enthusiasts will have an wonderful opportunity to spend a few hours out in the woods, help restore a natural area, and get some exercise on the last weekend in January. Riverland Conservancy, a non-profit land trust, is seeking volunteers to participate in a Winter Stewardship Day at Merrimac Preserve near Devil’s Lake State Park on Saturday, January 31 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

“Stewardship by individuals and connecting people with nature are very important parts of Riverland Conservancy’s mission,” said Linda Lynch, Riverland Conservancy’s General Manager. “Volunteers are critical to our success as we work to restore natural ecosystems and sustain the land for future generations.”

The Winter Stewardship Day will engage volunteers in working to restore the oak savanna at Merrimac Preserve, an 1800-acre property located between Baraboo and Merrimac. Activities will include brush cutting, piling and burning. Participants should dress for the winter weather with a warm coat, boots and work gloves and should bring a container of water.

Volunteers are to meet at the big red barn located at S6770A Hwy 113 at 9:00 a.m. and then carpool over to the worksite. No experience is necessary and anyone that has an interest is invited to pitch-in. To participate in the Winter Stewardship Day and to find out more details regarding the event, please contact Deb Frosch at (608) 356-0614.
