Merck Forest Rocks!!

Today, a group of volunteers from the Merck Forest and Farmland Center volunteered at the Hebron Nature Preserve clearing trails. The weather was not all that swift with cool temperatures and a misting rain but that did not stop the group. They brought along three chainsaws and heavy duty loppers to remove the many trees which were down in and across the path. After hours of hard work, the West Trail is now open. You can enter it from the South Grimes Hill Road just passed the creek bridge. The West Trail will bring you to the Observation Deck and to the old forest which is home to many animals including mink and owl. The footbridge has been restored after two major storms. The Woodland Loop’s widowmakers and the North Marsh fallen tree have also been cleared. Much appreciation goes out to Merck Forest for their aid in our trail cleanup. This is a wonderful organization with great people! Might I also add that Pat Wesner and her dog Darla assisted in the clearing. Thanks!
