Charlie O’Neil, Todd Derkacz, Vaughn Thayer and neighbors Kenneth Dees and Brad Smith got together on a recent Saturday (23 May) and put in some steward-time at Schulle. The primitive treads needed attention with rakes and weed eater, and a huge dead tree across the path that leads to Highcrest Apartments had its center cut away to re-open the trail. (Cool, just like national parks!) It was a good day. Thanks to all and thanks especially to Kenneth for getting things going with a neighbor-based “friends” group to take care of Schulle. Future items to be worked on include removing chinaberry and ligustrum and taming some of the box elder. A bridge and another bench may also be in the offing. If you think you would like to keep up with the Schulle events, maybe even participate in some way, send a note to [email protected] and we’ll get you plugged in for occasional notices.
