Progress! We are happy to report that our advocacy with the Township for trail improvements has resulted in a successful fix to the (formerly) boggiest part of the trail. The Township installed two French drains and improved the trail with crushed stone and stone dust in response to request. This was our members’ number one wish according to the 2015 Member Survey, and so far the trail has been clean and dry through several major rain events. Thank you Dave DeAngelis and the Township crew!
Wildlife and Respite Garden. Throughout 2015 volunteers continued to plant and maintain the Wildlife and Respite Garden. This year we have added about 650 groundcover and other perennial plants.
Parking Lot. We have had several meeting with the Township about parking lot improvements and Township crews have already implemented some of our requests: first, a fence to keep cars from slipping over the streambank, and some asphalt near the entrance to smooth the ride into the lot.
