That's me. Coop's muscle. Seriously, though, this is worthwhile time.

I need to do this. Despite taking time out from work, this will be well worth the effort. Time for me to give a little TLC to one of my favorite trails to run on.
Normal people scare me.

Awesome, Steve! Thanks for taking time off of work for this! :goodjob:

According to the FPC website this work party is only 49% full, so you can still join in and fulfill your FP user's duty!

Those of you who cannot make it this Saturday please consider donating or becoming a member.

Info @ forestparkconservancy.org!

I finally did it! For what little English Ivy I pulled I still felt I was doing something for the rehab of Forest Park.

Coop and I worked together as a team along with many others; tugging, pulling, and rolling up ivy. Hard and muddy work but we made some head way with clearing it away from the base of trees and native plants.

I enjoyed helping out and would encourage others to help. I will do this again.
