Bobcat Build – Can a Stone Wall Be Built in a Day?

Over 40 people, including a combination of SMGA volunteer leaders and Bobcat Build participants, completed seven projects during Bobcat Build On April 9 in the Prospect Park portion of Purgatory Creek Natural Area. The projects included invasive removal, native grass planting, removal of a silt fence (replacing it with a stone wall), walking all the trails and removing new growth and other obstructions, repairing the tread on the ADA trail, opening view sheds for two benches and ‘rescuing’ and replanting native plants. Special thanks to two groups, ECO (Environmental Conservation Organization) and Professor Susan Hanson’s class on Nature and the Quest for Meaning. Both groups contributed large numbers of workers and a lot of spirit.

Thanks to Hope Shimek and Lance Jones for sharing these photos. And thanks to these SMGA volunteer leaders: Mike Baugh, Donna Browning, Todd Derkacz, Rick Henderson, Lance Jones, Jo Ellen Korthals, Dick McBride, Ida Miller, Charlie O’Neil, Kenny Skrobanek, Mark & Ben Taylor
