GLACIAL PRAIRIE WORK DAY
Dorothy Carnes Park: Brush Removal
Saturday, March 25th – 9:00am to Noon
Dorothy Carnes Park was started in 2000 through a generous private donation. This allowed Jefferson County and its partners to use state and federal grants to buy and protect a total OF 514 acres around Rose Lake. Through that process, 480 of those acres were designated as a State Natural Area due to the significance of Rose Lake to the area’s flora and fauna.
Today, the park provides year round recreation for hiking, birding, nature appreciation, picnic, dog walking, cross country skiing, camping, gardening, and more. The property has rolling topography, broad views of the landscape, and features restored prairies, woods, and wetlands.
We will be removing invasive brush—but this time we don’t need to pile cut brush due to its relatively scattered presence.
