NEXT REITER FOREST WORK PARTY IS MAY 16
May 12, 2010
(INDEX, WA) -- The next DNR (Dep't of Natural Resources) sponsored Reiter Forest work party is Sunday, May 16. The focus at this work party will be to help plan for the new motorized trail system in the forest.
Anyone who is interested in offering ideas on where trails could go in the future is invited to come on Sunday.
DNR sponsors work parties at Reiter the first Saturday and third Sunday of every month. Participants meet at 9:30 a.m. at the gravel parking area off Reiter Road.
During the last work party on May 1st some twenty-two people came out to volunteer for the day in spite of the rain and cold.
The volunteers spent the afternoon decommissioning old trail routes that are not part of the Reiter Foothills Recreation Plan. Decommissioning trails involves placing downed logs, transplanting native vegetation, and installing drainage features to reduce soil erosion.
