National Public Lands Day
Thank you to the many volunteers who spent the morning of September 30th helping REI and the Friends of Fort Harrison State Park with their playground landscape project for National Public Lands Day. The fence has been repaired, brush cleared, weeds pulled, and the benches and fence partially painted. Unfortunately we ran out of paint, so watch for an additional work day to complete the painting part of the project.
