As of July 15th
We’re trying to keep up with the brushing. Just completed the trail along the back of Buck Lake (from Post #3 to Post #8). FYI, that’s the 3rd time this year we have had to brush this section.
If you find other areas that need work, please let us know.
It’s getting dry out there and you will notice that we have put up the fire danger signs. While there are no use restrictions at this time, you just need to be mindful of the conditions and be very careful.
Can’t remember where the trail number posts are located? Check out our map in the General Information menu item. Remember, you can always load the Maprika app on your smart phone and import the Hansville Greenway map. The app works with Android or iOS. With GPS enabled, you should be able to find your way with no problem.
Want to report stuff? Want to volunteer to help? Just e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can contact Art at 360-638-0738 to make your report. You can also comment on our Facebook page.
We are short of able-bodied people to help with maintenance, so if you’ve ever wanted to volunteer your time for a really good cause, we’d love to have you. Any time you can contribute is really appreciated! And you’ll get bragging rights for working with us! There is no “required” amount of time for volunteers to work. We are just happy to get any help we can get.
We are leading organized hikes through the Greenway. The hike held on June 1st had a couple of takers and a good time was had by all. We must be getting more popular, as the July 13th hike had 5 hikers. Who should go on one of our hikes? Anyone who feels uncomfortable hiking in the woods alone. Anyone who wants to learn more about the great out-of-doors right in our own community. Or anyone who wants a leisurely walk in the woods.
The next planned Greenway guided hikes will be offered on the following dates:
August 17, and September 14th. They will start at Buck Lake parking lot (the southwest corner) at 9:00 and last two to three hours.
Note that the hike on July 14th will start at the southwest corner of the big field, as the car show will be in full swing at that time. Just meet down by the bulletin board/trailhead.
The hikes are not difficult, but hikers should dress for the weather and wear good walking shoes. Take along any snacks you might want as well as drinking water. No water fountains in the woods!
If you plan on hiking with us, please let us know by emailing email@example.com. While this is not required, it lets us know how many people to expect.
We finished with the United Way Day of Caring. A couple of projects were worked on with the installing of hardware cloth on the viewing platform at Bear Meadow being completed (except we ran out of hardware cloth). The trail from Twin Spits Rd. to the bollards just at the woodline on the Alder Wetlands trail was almost finished. Time caught up with us and we still have 30 or 40 feet of gravel to put down.
