FOR PLANNING PURPOSES:  Our mowing is done on Thursdays, approximately twice each month. If the weather is wet on Thursday this may get moved around. Bill Devena has done a very good job this past year and ONLY asks that the range be closed while he is mowing. With his equipment it usually only takes about a hour.

For a map and directions, see the Contact Page.
