Pre-Trip Volunteering at Wapehani Mountain Bike Park
On Saturday, we headed to Bloomington's Wapehani Mountain Bike Park for an awesome pre-trip volunteering experience! We worked with Kevin from Bloomington Parks and Recreation and another ASB environment group that will be serving the Cumberland Island National Park Service during Spring Break.
We completed the following trail beautification projects:
*Removed invasive rose thorn bushes, a potential threat to bikers
*Mastered the use of a weed wrench to make a new Easy-level trail
*Transplanted baby pines to a new home
Our group enjoyed the beautiful weather, help improved biking trails at Wapehani Mountain Bike Park, and learned valuable skills to impress Plateau Restoration. Our journey begins next Sunday, departing Bloomington at 3AM. Arches National Park, here we come!
