On Saturday morning, July 9th, the Friends worked together to keep Red Bug Slough Preserve such a special and beautiful place. Bags of trash and recyclables were pulled out of the woods and lake. Exotic plants like potato vines were also cleaned up. Chris kicked butt moving heavy concrete rubble out. Others retrieved some old lumber and a long-abandoned mattress. Ronda pulled fishing line from the shrubs around the lake. It was a wonderful day, the weather was warm but the Friends were done and home before the rain started around 10:30.
