New Boardwalks For Hibou

Oct 2013aWe are very grateful for all the help we get from our volunteers.  Thank you so much for your contributions of time and energy.  The pictures show well the success of work teams in the past.  You are great.

We have scheduled two mornings when we plan to build boardwalks again.  We need volunteers.  Can you help?  Please let us know ahead.  Email Bob Knapp rmknapp@yahoo.com

Date and Time:  Wed July 27 and Thurs July 28,  9:00 to 12:30.

Location:  meet at the garage at the left parking lot at main beach.

Bring: hammer, work gloves and ear protection if you have it and a bathing suit if you want to swim.Oct 2013 e

Plan:  There will be pre-cut wood on the site.  We will work in teams to build 8 ft sections.  They will be stored in the garage until a later date when we use them to replace some of the older sections in the wetland.

Beach Cleanup

Great group of 10 volunteers and 3 GSCA staff worked hard today raking up much of the decayed leaves and sawdust debris from the beach edge.  Beautiful day and amazing view the entire time.

Thank you to everyone who was there.  We are hopeful for a good year of swimming close to home.

Feels good! Job well done!
