    Accomplished a lot and learned a lot. Best practice is to remove the root system, not cut it off.

    Wear orange safety vest and hard hats! Hunting Season is open on Eglin. We'll meet at Okaloosa Tower for the Powerpoint presentation and then travel to Silver Creek mid-morning for the field exercise. The exercise will include a side hill re-route to avoid and erosion area. Plan on lunch in the field.

    Tom, since I think we have already done the trail prep, what are we going to do on the 31st?

    December 26, 2013

    • Tom D.

      The presentation has been expanded but I anticipate doing it again at the Jan. 10-12 project. The field exercise for this session will be a side hill restoration near Silver Creek (not along 331). Would love to have you but there will be some duplication from Dec. 3rd. No chainsaw work this time.

    The meeting location has been changed to Eglin / Okaloosa Tower on the Eglin AFB Reservation.
