November 14 (Glen Ellyn) - From 9:00 a.m. - noon, we are trying something new at the scheduled workday. The Glen Ellyn Park District is teaming up with Sustain DuPage to cut young buckthorn that will be used to make a wattle hurdle. A what? A wattle hurdle is a panel of woven fence. You can use it to pen-up your waddling wattled-turkeys, use it as a decorative piece in your yard, or weave a nice holiday gift for someone. We will provide the loppers to cut the buckthorn, but please bring a pair of hand pruners if you have them to help de-branch the saplings. Andrew Van Gorp will be on hand to demonstrate the techniques and possibly wield his trusty hatchet to speed up the de-branching efforts. Help with ecological restoration and take home a personal creation as a reward.
