Schiffendecker Bridge Reinstallation
Wednesday, September 26, 9 AM to 1 PM
Schiffendecker Preserve, Glenmont
Earlier this summer, a bridge at the Schiffendecker Preserve was lifted up and away by heavy rains. 6+ volunteers will be needed to help move the bridge and shuttle in materials to build new abutments. The more the merrier. Please carpool from the MHLC office at 8:30 if you are able to, as the lot is small. After successful reinstallation, refreshments will be provided to celebrate.
Meadow Seeding at the Bozen Kill
Friday, September 28, 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM
Bozen Kill Preserve, Altamont
Help grow our pollinator garden at the Bozen Kill Preserve. We will be preparing the seedbed and laying down the meadow seed. Rototillers, seed rollers, seed spreaders, loppers, axes, trowels, and gloves will all be needed – please bring any tools you may have and wear long sleeves, long pants, and closed toed shoes. Meet at the BZK parking area.
