The Seasonal Bridges Are In!

The Seasonal Bridges Are In!

Our Spring Seasonal Bridge Installation on Sunday 4/19 went very well with the help of about 13 volunteers. Hopefully, there weren’t too many sore muscles afterwards, those bridge sections can be  awkward to handle!  Once again, the downstream group finished before the upstream (nothing like a little friendly competition to add to the fun). But in all fairness, the upstream bridge is much harder to install and its always a challenge to drive steel posts into a rocky creek bed.  All in all, it makes for a very satisfying day of good work with great people in a beautiful setting.
