Earth Day Cleanup and Invasive Plant Removal
July 8, 2023 10AM to 2PM
The cleanup went pretty well. Thanks go out to Rex, Jannell, Nicole, Martha, Dave Beglau, Sue and Chuck. We were only able to mostly clear the path from the Holly Academy to the footbridge. We put up a pile of branches to burn, but stopped because it was beginning to rain. There is a lot more work to be done there cutting autumn olive and burning it. On the bright side, there is a good crop of black raspberries ripening there.
Headwaters Trails along with The Blue Heron Headwaters Conservancy is sponsoring a service day to clean up trash and remove invasive plants at Holly Township’s Shiawassee Park. This is the rescheduled event that was originally scheduled for Apr 22nd. The Shiawassee Park is 38 acres of land with access on Fish Lake Road, between the Railroad Tracks and the Shiawassee River. We are inviting the public to come out to help with this work in an effort to improve the park and build trails within the park. It is across the river from the new launch built by Headwaters Trails, that will be open to the public once the county grants a permit in the spring. The work area will be near 358 Hidden River Drive East, Holly MI 48442. Follow the signs to the parking area.
There will be people there to show you what to do and provide tools to do the job. A sack lunch will be provided to those who RSVP.
