Spencer Butte Trail Maintenance

October 30, 2010

For this month’s trail maintenance outing on Spencer Butte we broke into two groups; one group continued our work on the West Summit Trail and the second group of Tom O’Brien and Connie Morehouse hiked the main trail clearing culverts to prepare the trail drainage for a wet winter. Along the West Trail this time we planted 88 sword ferns and three big leaf maples along the sides of the cobble path to revegetate and rehabilitate what was once an extremely wide trail.

Sword ferns are resilient and hopefully many of them will survive and provide a visual clue to help people and pets stay on the official trail.

Participants: Jim Pierce, Rob Castleberry, John and Janet Jacobsen, and Peter Green (members); Flo DeLaney, Katie O'Neal, Lance PooleHussa, Todd Larsen, Connie Morehouse, Tom O’Brien, and Betty Grant (non-members); and Matt Bell (leader).
