Spencer Butte

October 31, 2009

Dressed for rain, not Halloween, enthusiastic volunteers met in the main Spencer Butte Parking lot for a planting project. We carried about 100 potted Douglas Fir, Ponderosa Pine, Dogwood, Big leaf Maple, Vine Maple and sword ferns up the steep west trail and planted between the barrier fences erected in previous sessions. At 11:00 we cheerfully voted to continue the planting on an unauthorized steep path taking off from the south trail. Pumpkin bread wrapped in individual bags made it easy for us to eat with our “muddy hands” and also not worry about the flu bug.

It was a hard working crew! One person said, “I didn’t want to come when I woke up this morning but this was lots of fun. I’m glad I came.” The next trail maintenance will be Saturday, November 28, 9:00 a.m. meeting at Spencer Butte Parking Lot. There are several projects planned including more planting.

We appreciated the help of Cal Young student, Joel, who was working on his leadership hours. Open Space staff included Lorna Baldwin, Jason Morrow and Christer Labrecque. Members: Matt Bell,Tashi Choden, Peter Green, Janet Jacobsen, John Jacobsen, and nonmembers: Connie Morehouse, Adam Gapinski.
