A New Beginning

Thanks to Bob McGinness and the folks at Exterior Site Services we have a newly surfaced path out to our wooded trail and wetlands.  It is crushed concrete.  It will be a no maintenance and wheelchair accessible surface.  Thank you Bob and crew! 
And there is more excitement to come!

Entry to the woods
The paths through the wooded areas have been cleared and are ready for wood chips.  The DeGrandchamps are donating chips and we will be looking for help to spread them on Saturday, September 8th, at 10:00 a.m.  Thank you in advance DeGrandchamps! 

Tyler, one of the eagle scouts, developed an additional trail and will be puting up bird houses and labeling some of the trees.  Jim Ingraham built a picnic table in the clearing and is helping the eagle scouts with their various projects.  Cameron, another eagle scout, will be adding benches in the clearning for an outdoor classroom.  Our third eagle scout, Andrew, is making a viewing deck for the wetland area. 
I went out this evening to check on the progress and I was blown away.  The progress was amazing and the beauty of those woods was stunning.  I am so excited!  I hope that you can join us on Saturday, September 8th, to share in the joy and spread a few wood chips!
