Remember to log at least 8 hours a month between April and October but please log your hours every time you're out, even if its not during those months. As always, we appreciate your time out on the Trail, so thank you! If you have any questions, please reach out to email@example.com or call us at 484-945-0200.
» Reminder: Please file an Incident Report Form found at http://goo.gl/forms/vIgoJuoHgA for unauthorized motorized vehicles on the trail. Thank you to those who are submitting the Form.
» Ambassador ID Cards: Many of you have expiring cards. Send an e-mail to request to firstname.lastname@example.org to be sent a new ID card. Thank you to those that have contacted us already!
» Trees: Aggressive rain events soak the soil, potentially destabilizing trees. This is especially acute if rain is followed by moderate to high winds resulting in tree fall. Please notify the Heritage Area at 484 945-0200 or at email@example.com if you observe leaning, hanging, or downed trees during your patrols, or any other situations that may require remediation and repair. Include location, time, date, if access is impeded, and any actions you took.

» With the recent rains we are playing whack-a-mole with repairs. Lewis was called, again, to deal with the debris against the Douglassville Bridge. We do not have an idea when it will be removed yet, but we have a little cash stashed away from the last job and we really hope it's enough. Keep those maintenance need notices coming in! Greg and his chain saw crew are out almost daily with trees, mostly ash, due to the emerald borer and the storms.
» With the Ride for the River coming up the TrailKeepers will be called in force to spruce up the trail for the event. Please consider coming out - we can always use the help!
» The Whittaker Bridge project over PA 724 at Monocacy is on track for a fall/winter bid and construction next year!
