Cleanup is finished! A big thank you to everyone who helped!

Volunteers recycled: 8-1/2 tons of metal, 2-1/2 tons of wood, 1 ton of tires, 8-1/4 tons of concrete and numerous large boxes of glass and plastic. They’ve also filled 7.5 large roll-off dumpsters with trash.

We've been working with Waste Management and the Wildlife Habitat Council to make this land into wildlife habitat. To help with that goal, Boy Scout, Evan Smith, organized the construction and installation of thirty bluebird houses around the perimeter of an approximately 150 acre parcel.
