Sunday, May 19, 9am to noon.
Meet near the NORTH parking lot Kiosk (Fauntleroy Way SW & SW Rose St). If you miss us at 9am, check the kiosk map to see where we’re working or call Lisa at 248.506.7155.
Dress in NW layers to stay warm/cool and dry. We suggest long sleeves and pants year round to protect from scratches. Wear closed toe, sturdy shoes or boots. Bring garden gloves and clippers (or your favorite tool) and we will have extra tools and gloves to borrow.
The fabulous and fun FLiP crew meets the first Saturday and third Sunday of each month. This is the time of the year when we need to pay close attention to weather forecasts. Temps are warming and rain never stops us, but if there are HIGH WIND warnings, it’s not safe to be in the woods and we’ll need to cancel. More info here: https://friendsoflincolnpark.blogspot.com
