HANSVILLE GREENWAY UPDATE

The timber harvest, conducted by Olympic Resource Management, on the 65 acres just west of Hansville Road was completed early this Summer and trees will be replanted as soon as the weather permits.  During the logging operation a short part of the Hansville Greenway trail that runs parallel to Hansville Road was torn up and needs to be rebuilt.  In the meantime, if you are hiking that portion of the trail between post 18 and Hansville Road, you can now use the logging road instead and bypass the short damaged part of the trail next to Hansville Road.

The book, “Story of the Hansville Greenway” written by Sid and Craig Knutson, is now available at the Hansville Store.  If you enjoy hiking the Greenway trails you will enjoy and appreciate reading this book. Sid has requested that proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the Hansville Greenway Association’s fourth grade environmental field trip educational program.

Volunteers have been busy during the Summer, cutting back unwanted vegetation such as blackberry vines and Salmon berry bushes encroaching on the trails and taking care of some of the low spots that get muddy during our rainy winter.  The trails are constantly being maintained and improved thanks to the stewards and volunteers.

If you would like to be involved as a volunteer, please come to the next Hansville Greenway meeting, October 5th at 6:00 p.m. at the Greater Hansville Community Center.  Check out our website: www,hansvillegreenway .org.  You can also reach us on Facebook.
