Service Day at the Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve

A big thank you to all the neighbors and other volunteers
who came to support the Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve
on this service day.
King of the mountain! Service can be fun.

A young garter snake made a brief appearance.

An exuberant young helper at one point exclaimed "If only we were big enough to get that tree!" Not to worry, little guy, lots of hands (and a few chainsaws) usually does the trick.

A grant from the GA Forestry Service is helping the Clyde Shepherd Nature preserve eliminate privet (an invasive species) to make way for native plants. Volunteers brought a large amount of brush to the curb for chipping later this week. Bonus points if you can spot Bigfoot. Click to enlarge.
