Saws & Slaws – Another great turn out!!

Twenty-seven volunteers arrived at Donna Zelney’s home on Saturday, to fell, limb, buck and drag and stack the slash from two hundred trees, The volunteer’s efforts totaled 128 hours of neighbors helping neighbors to create wildfire defensible space.

Donna changed things up providing a fantastic taco bar, salads, chips, deserts, snacks and beverages. The volunteers were very appreciative.

Based upon yesterdays and last month’s Saw & Slaws events, it’s obvious that our Bailey neighbors are recognizing the importance of creating wildfire defensible space. Once again, we had volunteers from outside of the Burland; KZ Ranch, Deer Valley Creek Ranchos, Roland Valley, and Burland Meadows all pitched in. Their help is always greatly appreciated.

While we fell all 200 trees, limbed, dragged and stacked slash, there is still much more to do. We will be returning on August 7th to finish the project. Be watching for the Burland Firewise flyer coming out soon!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to the Bailey Community and our Volunteers.
