The warm sunny days of Summer are here and it’s a good time to take a stroll through the cool shady wooded Greenway trails.  The trails are dry and open for an easy hike thanks to the volunteers who have cut back most of the encroaching brush and vegetation.  With all the rain we had in late Spring the blackberry vines and salmon berry bushes grew faster and bigger than normal. The stewards and other volunteers were busy with their clippers in July  keeping the trails wide open.

As always, with the dry, warm weather conditions, there is a higher threat of possible wild fires.  As Smokey the Bear says, “Only you can prevent forest fires.”  A reminder too that motorized vehicles are not allowed in the Greenway.  Dogs must be on a leash no matter what size as this is a wildlife preserve.  Please use a mutt mitt to pick up after your pet and place it the garbage.  Don’t leave it behind on the trails.

The next Hansville Greenway Association meeting will be Thursday, August 3 at 6:00 pm.  Come join us and learn more about the Greenway trail system or sign up to help as a volunteer and be part of a great team.  You can find a trail map and detailed information about the Greenway at our website: www.hansvillegreenway.org,  You can also visit us on Facebook.
