Volunteers Needed for a Second Day of Tree Planting

The Mercer wildlife team will be holding a second work day at the Little Turtle Flowage on June 18th. We plan to put in the remaining 12 crabapples in two different openings. If time permits, we would like to clear some of the encroaching vegetation from the water’s edge within the grassland area. A recent burn on the property did a great job killing the majority of the brush within the burn unit. However, there is plenty of work to be done outside of the burn unit and along the edges of the upland portion of the burn unit. Thank you David Lombardo, Mike Shouldice, and Eric Olsen with MECCA and Bill Latke with the Turtle Flambeau Flowage & Trude Lake Property Owners Association for the help planting 24 plum trees and setting up 36 deer and rodent enclosures around the trees.

Please RSVP if you’re available Monday, June 18th at 9 AM. We will meet at the LTF parking lot.

Thank you!
