Brush Burning Work Day at Dobbs Landing

In 2014, TMLIA contributed to the purchase of the Dobbs Landing property; 178 acres with over a mile of Red Cedar River frontage just upstream ofTainter Lake.  For many years Dobbs Landing was a hidden spot to launch a canoe in the upper Red Cedar River. After the purchase, it remains open to public use and the site of restoration efforts.
 
If you are interested in getting involved with the improvement of this secret gem, this Sunday, March 25th at 1 pm is your chance!  See the attached flier for more details.
 
Please email theprairieenthusiasts.csc@gmail.com to RSVP in order to plan for refreshments. Please include your name and phone number in case the work day is postponed due to weather.

From Colfax, drive west on County Highway BB approximately two miles to 850th Avenue.  Turn right onto 850th Avenue, proceed west ¼ mile to a sand/gravel road to the right that is signed Dobbs Landing.  The site is less than a half mile from 850th.
