Join us for refreshing trail blazes and reconfiguring the blue trail

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the March workday at Little Manatee River Nature Preserve (LMRC). We made great progress refreshing the trail blazes and reconfiguring the west (red) trail. The site coordinator, Mary Barnwell, expressed her gratitude for our efforts and is excited to see the improvements.

For our April workday, we will return to LMRC to focus on the blue trail. During our March visit, we didn't have enough time to address the blue trail, so this will be our priority for the upcoming workday.
