Stewardship weekend update: Have you wondered why there are so many water bars on some trails? Water bars prevent wash outs. The work that your nonprofit club in partnership with Environment and Parks has performed over the past couple years including creating water bars has resulted in a sustainable trail at Cow Lake. This year the club spent time cleaning 72 water bars from silt and pine needles, plus cutting 26 fallen trees on Cow Lake and the switchback trail. We also planted over 800 willows last year and we are seeing new growth in all areas that we planted.
On Lesueur Trail the hard work continued...46 water bars drained and 15 fallen trees removed. No new wash outs on this trail due to previous maintenance from your nonprofit club and Environment and Parks. Great partnership and team work!!
And two days of litter picking down TransAlta Road, South Ghost Staging area, Waiparous Creek staging area, and Waiparous Valley Road. Both garbage bins, which were graciously donated by Canlin Energy, were filled.
Thanks to all the volunteers for coming out. Great to see familiar faces and meet new ones. And big thank you to the Ghost Community as well for their support.
