Notes from Stephen Pedrick, Chairman of the JCTC --

Here are the results of our Work Day -- here's what we accomplished:

    Sanded and sealed four benches.

    Mulched, trimmed, and cleaned approximately 65 mile markers -- see before and after photos below.

    Planted 25 trees along Highway 1 South -- see Trees below.

    Planted 60 pots of Mycanthis decorative grass at 8th & Gear -- see Grasses below.

    Secured Netting on bridges on the Fry Property.

    And several other tasks.

Overall, it was a great day to work and we got a lot of things done!      Scroll down to see more photos.
