GLC's Mission: To permanently preserve and protect land and water resources for future generations
Christel Woods Land Walk 2-17-18
On February 17th, a group of nearly 20 individuals met at the Christel Woods Preserve in Valders.
This was a perfect opportunity to explore this land that is seasonally wet during much of the year.
Participants noted tree species on the preserve, listened to bird calls, and spotted animal tracks.
This was also a good chance to check out the ditch remediation project recently implemented on this property to help eliminate flooding issues, particularity in regards to nearby roadways.
The next land walk is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 12th, at 10:00 am at the Ann Knauf Trust Property near the Kettle Moraine State Forest. We are expecting this to be an opportune time to spot some spring flowers! For more information about this property visit:
