An update from Molly Anderson, 11 September: “Due to current acorn conditions (or lack thereof) we will be cancelling this workday after all. It’s such a shame too because the weather is going to be nice and cool.”

The objective of this workday is to collect acorns for future dispersal at a designated management unit within the preserve being prepped for forest restoration.

Suggestions: Wear sturdy hiking boots suitable for walking over uneven and steep terrain. Dress for the weather and in layers. A pack such as a nail belt, shoulder bag (like a newspaper or letter-carrier’s bag) or fanny pack will useful to collect acorns (leaving hands free from holding buckets or bags). Some additional supplies will be provided. Snacks and water will also be provided. Please note there are no restroom facilities at this site.

Meet at 10:00 a.m. at the end of Starling Drive/start of Fire Tower Road in the Sylvan Oaks development.

Directions: The Brush Mountain Preserve is located in Logan and Frankstown Townships in Blair County. Travel on I-99 to Frankstown Exit at the Logan Town Centre Shopping Center/Frankstown Road. At light at the end of exit ramp, turn Left onto Frankstown Road. Travel on Frankstown Road for a few miles and turn Left onto Sylvan Oaks. Take Sylvan Oaks to the end of the development and stay straight as it turns into Starling Drive (at right-hand bend in the road). Travel on Starling Drive to the end where the dirt road (Fire Tower Road) begins.
