MAR 2018 - 2 Crews at Lodge-Middle Ridge and No. Escape

A good turn out of 14 crew members including one new person and Fran from days past!  Two crews this month with most people heading out to N. Escape Rd to work on that massive 100ft length Doug Fir on the road at a 30deg angle with a 16ft circumference at the base that equates to 4.5ft diameter and still ~3.5ft OD at 70ft from base!  Now that some work.  The other crew took care of a couple of things off Lodge Rd for Sempervirens and then a tree on Middle Ridge near Ocean View Overlook.

FEB 2018 - A Rememberance of Linda 2 Crews

FEB 2018 - A Rememberance of Linda 2 Crews

The Trail Crew had another very good turnout of 17 people on a very spring like February workday. We started the day remembering the Sempervirens Fund's Linda Yule who passed away in December with, what else, pie! Linda would often bring warm pies out for the Trail Crew to enjoy in exchange for help with grove preparation work and I like to think she would have enjoyed being remembered in this way.

The Trail Crew had a record breaking year in 2017 in terms of hours worked with 1,312 and the new year got off to an equally good start with 16 people out in January including three first timers.   We broke into three groups covering the Sunset-STS Connector Trail area, the Shadowbrook-Sempervirens Loop starting from the Kirsch Trail, and finishing the Eastridge Trail tree left over from last month.

NOV 2017 - Tale of 3 Crews

NOV 2017 - Tale of 3 Crews

With the annual Trail Crew Holiday Party next month, November would be our last full workday of the year and there were several things we wanted to accomplish, so we decided to break into three, yes 3 groups instead of the usual two.  A great Saturday morning with 11 Crew Members turning out. One group of 4 crew members headed to Last Chance trail, 4 took on STTS just past the Maddock cabin site to re-route the trail, and 3 replaced 10 tired signs on the Redwood Loop trail.

OCT 2017 - Basin Trail

OCT 2017 - Basin Trail

It was a typical cool morning/warm afternoon fall day and we had what has become a routine excellent turnout of 13 crew members including two new people. Even with the devastating fires still burning in Napa and Sonoma the skies were clear though new crew member Alyssa Hanover said she had been in the park the day before and there had been a lot of smoke from the fires.

JUN 2017 - Gazos and Dool Trail

Nine crew members showed up and at first it seemed we had just one chain saw so was trying to sort out were to best utilize it when Johnmentioned that he also had a saw.  We split up into two groups, one with Peter, Michele, Chris & David B, heading out Gazos Creek Road to Middle Ridge Road, the other off to parts of the Eastridge trail.
