We have invited the 10,000 Years Institute to bring a trained crew
in to work with local volunteers and Public Works to provide
a demonstration of methods to remove Scotch broom on dunes.
We will start at Chance a la Mer and work north.
Please join us in this worthwhile project - bag lunch provided on the 17th.
Dress with long sleeves and pants, sturdy shoes, work gloves, cap,
rain-gear as needed, and bring a lopper if you have one to work with.
Everyone will need to sign a release.
Email cdingler@osgov.com to let us know you
are coming so can have enough bottled water and food.

The crew has found that 2x gear loppers are best.
