    Today was a productive one at the Center. Thankfully, the weather didn't curtail our plans. We mowed, lopped, hauled rocks, cleared trail, raked gravel and cut trees. We did everything on our task list! We had some first time Trail Hog volunteers out there that added greatly to the team effort. Thanks to all for a job well done!

    I had the best time here! The center was fantastic! I got to see and learn about bald eagles, turtles, and different tree species. I even did a little work! ;)

    I just checked a forecast and it shows that this system should clear thru by 9 a.m.. We'll give it a go and hope for the best.

    The trails at the Center are short trails and bailing at any time during the day is not a problem. Our work is usually finished by 2 or 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Also, we have a handful of extra hard hats for loan. Hope you can join us.

    Hard hats? What if one can not work all day?
