Earth Day

Its been busy in the muc. We’ve been having some serious weather and Earth Day weekend was no exception. We were out there to Lear about Leave No Trace and to plant saplings in the burn area.

The day started off cold, but by lunch time it was windy. There were sustained winds at 15 – 20 MPH and gusts to at least 40. You can see in the picture how clear it was in the morning and how windy it got. Working in a burn with loose soil didn’t help and we had dirt in our eyes most the time.

But at the end of the day we’d planted about 300 seedlings and put mulch mats down for about half of them. The boyscouts were there and helped a lot. At the end of the day everyone looked about fifteen years older from the dirt. That shower afterwards felt amazing.
