Green Team travels to Edge of Appalachia

The Green Team traveled to Edge of Appalachia Preserve for three days of camping, trail work, and creek time! This annual trip is possible because of our incredible partnership with Ohio Nature Conservancy. While there, they worked to install punch-ins, or small boardwalks, on Buzzardroost Rock Trail to help keep visitors out of the mud in wet areas. This included measuring, cutting, and carrying in all of the lumber about a quarter way up the trail (which was no small task, with each person taking an average five trips with lumber!). Working together, the group built two long sections of punch-ins and learned how to customize them to better fit the trail. We celebrated a very productive workday by visiting the local Amish market afterward for some sweet treats! The final day was spent kayaking as a group down the Ohio Brush Creek. The group also enjoyed plenty of downtime, swimming in the creek, playing games, and hanging out in their tents. Thank you to all who make this trip possible! We are already looking forward to next year!
