Workday at Three Bridges Oak Preserve

January 28, 2023

A "Great Big Thanks" to the 58 volunteers that came out to help clean up the trailhead at Three Bridges Oak Preserve.  After the recent flooding of the trailhead there was vegetaton debris all over the trailhead and surrounding fences.  The flooding ripped out some of the fence along the creek. The rushing water gouged out holes in some areas and deposited large amounts of silt and sand in other areas.  A total mess!

The hard working volunteers filled up a 40 yeard dumpster with green waste debris, piled up the trash, filled the large holes and removed a lot of silt.  At the end of the workday we were happily amazed at all the work that was completed!
