Join ICORE for a trail workday at Lipp Lake, located in the Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area.
Lipp Lake is featured as Site #14 on the Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area Auto Tour because of its natural stand of eastern white pine. The short trail here has been neglected for quite some time and is in need of help to make it usable again. With permission from the DNR, ICORE plans to clean up this 1/4 mile walking trail on Saturday, October 21st beginning at 10:00am. We continue until the work is done or until we're too tired to do more - but of course, many hands make light work!
Items to bring for the work day include:
Clothing - layered work clothing (it could start out cool and get warm), work gloves, sturdy shoes or boots, and/or rain gear
Beverages/snacks- bring water or a healthy beverage, and a snack
Tools- rakes, hand saws, and chainsaws. (We do have permission to use power tools, but please be aware that if you choose to use your own tools you accept all risk. The DNR and ICORE do not take any responsibility or liability for their use.)
Vehicles- Trucks and/or trailers may be helpful to haul brush away, though some can be simply pulled off the trail
Lunch- Pack a lunch if you think you'll be able to continue to work past lunch time
Lipp Lake is located in Mercer on Popko Circle West, about 3/4 mile south of County Highway FF.
Bring a friend and join us in our first group trail project! Questions? Contact ICORE board member Diane O'Krongly
