Community Councils are beginning to weigh in on the CCAC development proposal. Avondale just issued a letter of support for CCAC in Burnet Woods.  CTM has not issued their position yet. Please communicate to Corryville, Mt. Auburn, Uptown, CUF, Mt. Airy and other councils the importance of their support for BW to remain a greenspace free of new development.

  • Saturday, November 17th: Invasive Removal Day #2
    • Where: Trailside Nature Center
    • When: 9:00am, Saturday 11/17
    • Why: Invasive Plants dominate the understory in some parts of Burnet and blanket over important vegetation and saplings in others. These keep the woods from replenishing itself and damage old growth trees.
    • How to help:  Show up ready to work. Dress for weather and to be in the woods. Gloves are recommended. Tools will be provided. We work until between 12-1pm.  There are plenty of ways to help including brush removal, litter pick-up, as well as cutting the invasives.
