Five inches of new snow didn’t deter a group of 11 volunteers from the Recreational Aviation Foundation who traveled to the northernmost village in Wisconsin to cut trees and remove brush at Cornucopia Airfield (WI23).
“The snowstorm the previous week didn’t appear to impede the skid steer or the volunteers,” RAF Director Jeff Russell noted.
A number of local town residents also showed up to work with the RAF volunteers on the improvement project, he added.
The group cleared four acres of brush and burned it, and cut and removed 50 trees.
RAF officials and volunteers hope the work will result in the airstrip being listed as “public use” as early as Spring 2022, Russell said.
