The Scott Conservancy would like to thank the seven United States Coast Guard volunteers based in Bridgeville for their help on Tuesday, June 11th in the Kane Woods Nature Area located in Scott Township.
The volunteers worked very hard in the mud constructing a much-needed set of stairs with 8 steps that goes up a hill at the end of one of the bridges.
The hill has often been difficult for hikers to climb due to the trails clay surface. It was especially difficult to walk this spring due to the exceptionally rainy weather.
They also lined a portion of a nearby stream bank with flat rocks to reduce erosion affecting the trail above. Volunteers needed to climb into the stream bank, clear debris, and move rocks from the streambed to stabilize the bank. Visitors to the trails located in the Kane Woods will find walking the trails in the Kane Woods Nature Area safer and easier because of their efforts.
The trails are open free of charge for community use but are in constant need of improvement. The wet weather the last few years has made it even harder to keep them walkable. The Scott Conservancy is a non-profit group who depends on public support and volunteer help to maintain the property.
The volunteers worked very hard making the much-needed improvements. We greatly appreciate the support the Coast Guard provided us.
