September 28 – Work Party to Maintain Trails at the Owen Sowerwine Natural Area

Join Flathead Audubon Society members for a morning of work at the Owen Sowerwine Natural Area on Saturday, September 28, from 9:00 to noon.

Audubon will be conducting maintenance on the new Accessible Trail, weed seed gathering, brushing, mowing and old deer stand removal. A group will also do 12 vegetative plot surveys to determine trends in vegetation growth.

This is an opportunity to spend a Saturday morning outdoors with bird enthusiasts and help with Flathead Audubon’s management of the Owen Sowerwine Natural Area.

Volunteers will meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Montessori School on Willow Glen Drive for a short orientation session, and then break out into small groups to work under team leaders.

Bring heavy work gloves, wear sturdy shoes, and dress for the weather – will work rain or shine.  Tools and other necessary equipment will be provided, but bring hand clippers and brush loppers if possible. Work will finish by noon. For information visit
