Picacho Earth Day, March 29th, 2014
Friends4Picacho volunteers team with Park staff for our 3rd annual Picacho Earth Day. The project this year was the Stamp Mill Trail. The trail is one of the most popular in the Park and was seriously in need of some rehab.
Volunteers broke up into teams to spread out over the 1.2 mile trail. The focus was on trimming brush, removing large rocks and smoothing out the trailway. Several areas were repaired that had severe erosion, and large rocks were placed along edges to clearly define the trail. Wood was replaced on benches and new signs were installed.
The work went quickly with so many friends on hand…over 35 volunteers and staff participated. Once again, we were done in just a few hours with a lot accomplished. Just in time for a nice lunch, sponsored by F4P. Thanks to all who participated!
We just can't thank enough, The California State Parks Foundation, for their continued support of Picacho SRA and all of our State Parks. Friends4Picacho was awarded a $4,800 grant for this project through their Discretionary Grant Program. We really couldn't have done it without them. Thank you CSPF!!!!!!!
F4P would also like to thank Camp Hosts, Joe and Margaret Reap, who volunteered their time routing the signs for the trail, in advance of Earthday. Thanks to Park Staff & Ranger Sue, who organize and prepare everything ahead of time. Well done everyone!
