We will be having another work party at the Colfax Red Cedar Preserve and Recreation Area (CRCPRA) this weekend on Saturday March 27th at 1:00 PM. During this event, we will be working on transplanting white pine saplings and removing siberian elm in order to prepare for a future pollinator planting near the entrance of the park. After we finish with the white pines and the siberian elm, we continue to work on removing other problematic woody invasive species.

All the necessary tools and work gloves will be provided. All you need to bring is yourself, some water to keep yourself hydrated, and some sturdy shoes.
Hope to see you there!

(Please park across the street at the Colfax park and boat launch/Felland Park. If you google Colfax park and boat launch it should direct you there. CRCPRA is just across the street from the boat launch.)

Psychological Benefits of Music

  1. Improve cognitive performance - playing more upbeat music can lead to improvements in processing speed and benefit memory
  2. Reduce stress - listening to music can be an effective way to cope with stress and recover more quickly from a stressor
  3. Help you eat less - music and lighting helped create a more relaxed setting and people consumed food more slowly and were more aware when they began to feel full
  4. Help manage pain - people who listened to music experienced significant reductions in feelings of pain and depression
  5. Help you sleep better - listening to relaxing classical music can be a safe, effective, and affordable remedy to insomnia and improve sleep quality
  6. Improve motivation - fast paced music helps boost motivation and enjoyment of exercise and encourages you to work harder
  7. Improve mood - listening or playing music helps people achieve a better mood and become more self-aware
  8. Improve endurance and performance - while working out, the addition of a fast-paced musical track could inspire people to pick up the pace
