This will be our 7th annual Gunflint Greenup weekend. For the first few years we have concentrated on planting trees in areas affected by the Ham Lake fire of 2007. In subsequent years we have worked releasing the trees we planted: that means cutting the vegetation that was starting to crowd out our plantings so they can get past their critical growth period and get the sunlight they need to get big and tall.
This year our Green Up weekend will have an expanded focus.
The plantings of the last few years in the area adjacent to the Chik Wauk Museum and Nature Center have been very successful, but we are now facing a lot of blow downs which are left overs from the Ham Lake fire.
This year we are going to tackle that project and start to clear the dead and downfall trees. We will be cutting them up and stacking them in burn piles–for burning when it is safe–either sometime in the spring or in the fall after snow falls.
The public is invited to join on Saturday for several hours to start clearing the grounds of this museum showpiece of the north woods.
Please bring a set of nippers, if you have one, for cutting branches, etc.
A logo with a pig on it and the name “Ham Run” may not seem fitting for a race in Northeastern Minnesota. The race started the year after the Ham Lake Fire ravaged the Gunflint Trail. To commemorate the coming together of the community and the greening up of the forest in the springtime as well as in the areas affeted by the fire the Ham Run was born. The Ham Run takes place miles from the nearest town, nature surrounds you with each step you take on this journey
