Halle Ravine

Volunteers Remove Old Bridges from Halle Ravine

Sixteen people attended our end-of-year Saturday morning work session at Halle Ravine and helped to remove old bridges from deep in the Preserve.  Students and seniors, mothers, and dads all carried out boards and even one entire bridge, as shown in this video.  Together we are stronger!  We leave the forest, stream, and trails in better shape after much work in Halle Ravine in 2016.   Projects are ongoing to control invasive species around the pond, with planting planned for this Spring.  We also plan to replace the decking on one or more bridges next year.  Be in touch to lend a hand!
