Jim Baggenstoss and Darrel Hill traveled to Daisy State Park to do some routine maintenance on the Daisy Nature Trail. They had to convince Jim to wear some shoes though!

The maintenance included lopping, blowing, weed eating, and blaze painting.  They also inspected previously installed bluebird boxes and cleaned/ repaired where needed.
In addition they installed a butterfly overwintering box in the perennial garden behind the Visitor Center.

Darrell took all the teasing that was forked out during the day (quite a bit actually!) with a sense of humor.












Tamara Lunsford ( Park Superintendent ) and Emily Young (Asst. Park Supt) were there to meet the group and to give a first hand look at the trail.  They also had an opportunity to identify a couple of trees that we were trying to pinpoint with a name --- Jim thinks they are Chinese Chestnuts.

Tamara also offered the group some left over lumber pieces to use at our discretion. This supply was gladly loaded up and will be turned into some great wildlife housing.
