In a mere 2 weeks, Warner Parks’ Special Work Education And Trails crew, affectionately known as S.W.E.A.T., has been busy enhancing and improving many places in the Parks.
To date, the team has:
- Moved and applied over 10 tons of gravel to hiking trails, particularly areas impacted by the March floods
- Groomed, trimmed, and maintained over 5 miles of hiking trails, including sections of the Mossy Ridge, Warner Woods, Burch Woods, Owl Hollow, Hungry Hawk, Storywalk, Nature Loop, and Harpeth Woods trails
- Partnered with several volunteer groups on large trail improvement projects
- Cleared and added structures to bird banding net lanes for the B.I.R.D. banding station
- Groomed and cleared the Lodge access trail in preparation for P.E.N. Pals day camps
- Learned about organic gardening, safe tool use and cleaning, Park history, natural history, and much, much more!
