Volunteer News: Trail Work Fun!

As often happens in summertime, I end up sitting in the shade staring up at the undersides of beautiful green leaves.

And, then I start thinking about GWLT and smile!

Perhaps some of these images will spark a memory.

Or give you an idea of what just might happen when you volunteer for a Trail Work Event.

 

There is just something about carrying logs with two-man timber carriers that never gets old.  Tired, perhaps, but never old!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those timbers are always put to good use!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Heading into the woods for trail work is pretty awesome!  We are equipped with loppers, bow saws, clippers, and snacks – ready to work!

 

Volunteers move rocks!

And de-bark black locust logs!

And help build tent platforms!

 

And shelters for a composting toilet!

Of course, all that material has to be carried into the woods.  And volunteers do that as well!

And this!

                           

 

And that is why I smile when I think of GWLT!
