NPLD A Huge Success

Thanks to Everyone

who got

"Down & Dirty" for Fort Dix!
National Public Lands Day was a huge success thanks to all of our volunteers who braved the weather and came out to the lake.
Over 80 volunteers teamed together to remove countless invasive plants at Lake of the Woods, restore eroding banks at Amphibious Lake by installing erosion mats and biologs, plant over 1,500 native grasses shrubs & aquatic herbs, remove truckloads of litter, and eat 30 pizzas! Not bad for a "rainy" day

Here are some photos of our volunteers hard a work:
