Clean up the Prairie!

Work continues, slow but steady

Last month, we were able to have someone come out and remove more debris from the prairie.  This picture is of our friend, Bert, pulling up sub-fencing from one of our fields.  Getting all this out of the prairie means that we can mow and manage weeds with less risk to our equipment, and eventually start to restore to prairie.

This project has been slow, but work continues to happen throughout the year.  One of our neighbors has even started to come and salvage metal from our debris piles.  The mutually beneficial arrangement helps us get the debris off the property, and he is able to make a little money selling the metal.

There is still lots to do, but every bit helps us move forward towards a healthy, thriving prairie. 

Even though the removal project has been slow - our other restoration project is moving along really well.  In the next month, we will be planting 10,000 native plants into one section of our prairie.  Very exciting!

Thanks for all your help - especially over the holidays!
