Hiking season is in full swing, and the 35 miles of Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area trails require more attention than they used to. The ice storm of two winters ago snapped off tree tops, leaving openings in the forest canopy that now allow more sunlight to shine on the forest floor. The additional sunlight means more vegetation growth. Hobbs Trail Maintenance Supervisor, Al Knox, is asking for volunteers (individuals, couples, families, groups) to work a few hours Saturday morning July 10th to help keep the Hobbs trails cleared and in good shape for all trail users.
Volunteers are reminded to wear appropriate clothing and to bring: gloves, sturdy boots, and a back pack for water and lunch. Safety equipment: helmets and eye protection will be provided by park staff. Meeting time is 8:00 a.m. Saturday
July 10, 2010 at the Hobbs Maintenance Complex located on War Eagle Road just off the War Eagle Road/Highway 12 intersection. To volunteer call: 479-789-5013
