On March 13th we hired Arrow Fire and Land to work on Trail #347.  There are many dangerous blind corners and they were able to clear out some of them.  There’s a lot more work to do.  We paid for the first 2 days of work and are writing a grant to pay for the rest of the project.  Total estimated # of days to complete is 10.  That’s a $20,000 bill.  One important requirement to get the grant is that we have in-kind (volunteer hours) so it is important that we do our part to help on this trail.
