Flowed Meadow Trail Improvement, 2015

The Environmental Science Program spent a hot muggy day working on trail improvements at the Flowed Meadow Conservation Area in Auburndale. Thanks to John Menard, professional landscaper, who provided wheelbarrows, shovels, and valuable advice to the group during the day, and to Marc Welch, City Forester, for staging a couple of huge piles of wood chips for the day's work.
