Before and After – Work Party January 2nd, 2020

The GOSA Stewardship crew is hard at work as 2020 begins. Eleven members of the GOSA stewardship team met at the Sheep Farm for a highly productive and visually rewarding work party! Under sunny skies, Bruce, Chet and Dan O. began brush-hogging the abundant meadows, while John used an attack mower to clear less dense areas of the meadows. They made great headway into this time-consuming task, and the finished areas look great!

In the meantime, Vicki, Joan, Marie, Lynn, Mark, Paul and Dan N. worked on the red trail in the area of the overlook. Paul and Mark felled several trees, while the rest of the group tackled the greenbrier and removed fallen branches and other detritus from the site. Jim was a great help bringing oil for the busy pole saws and taking one of our cantankerous attack mowers to Johnson’s True Value, Groton, for repair. The rock wall has now been exposed and the site looks beautiful.
