10 am - 2 pm
Heritage Park (11405 E. Miami River Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45252)
During this four hour event we will be harvesting live-stakes (willow cuttings). We are shooting to harvest 3,500 live-stakes. These live-stakes will be used during the Mill Creek and Little Miami River live-staking events.
While harvesting live-stakes we will be selecting branches that are .5 and 1.5 inches in diameter. Branches will be cut in 2-3 foot sections using loppers or pruners.
The Southwestern Ohio Water Company will be providing participants with a warm snack (hot chocolate and hot dogs) and a place to warm up.
