Hi There Friends of Hackmatack Volunteers! This Sunday, March 3rd from 9 a.m. to Noon the Friends of Hackmatack will host our next scheduled stewardship day. We will again be working at the Tryon Grove site, located on the north side of Tryon Grove Road, 1.5 miles west of the intersection with Routes 12 and 31 in Richmond. A map to the site from the intersection of Routes 12 and 31 is shown here: https://www.google.com/maps/dir/42.4508626,-88.3058114/42.4451761,-88.3329365/@42.4474411,-88.3280166,14.98z?entry=ttu The address is 7008 E Tryon Grove Rd, Richmond, IL 60071-9757, 42.447970, -88.332620. If you are familiar with our Tamarack West site, the Tryon Grove site is across the road and a bit further west (and on the north side of Tryon Grove Road). There is plenty of room for parking after you pull into the site; be careful when entering and exiting the site (oncoming traffic may be shielded from view). Look for the Hackmatack signs! We need a good turnout of folks to help us remove more brush and fencing from the fence line along Keystone Road bordering the site on the west side. Wear clothes and shoes that can get dirty, and please bring your own drinking water. Protective clothing such as long pants (not leggings) are recommended. We’ll have hand tools, workgloves, safety glasses, and a few snacks. An RSVP is appreciated, so if you know you will be attending please give me a heads up. Students are welcome! If you are under age 18, you will need a parent or guardian to sign the waiver form (sent to student emails 2/27/24 or forms located in HS Office) indicating that you are authorized to attend; you can either email the signed form back to me or bring it to the workday. (You do not need to sign, just your parent/guardian.) Note that some parts of this form are left blank. The sections to be completed are 1-19 and 28-36. Pete Jackson at 224-612-1803 if you have a question.
