Today David Boyd, Lilibeth Andre, Kelly Walker and I went to Deer Park Prairie and cut woody plants along the west fence-line. David, Lilibeth, and I worked for 3 hours apiece (9 total hours). Kelly worked for three plus hours (you should contact her to find out so you can get the total number of hours). We cut about 40-50 feet along the fence-line. We made several more large piles (it almost seems like one long pile) of cut vegetation. One of the neighbors came out and talked to us. He told us that coyotes are in the prairie and that in the early 1980’s there were quail in the prairie. He said he was glad we were cutting the vines and vegetation along the fence-line.
Many thanks to all of you!!!

I worked until dark and almost finished clearing the next fence down!
I worked 9:15- 6:00 w/o lunch and got a lot done! If the weather was better I’d go back. Maybe this weekend if it is ok.
Photos & updates on other November, December workdays will be posted shortly.
