Blaine Smith, Nature Center neighbor and long time supporter, spearheaded the design and construction of a new stairway at the River Trail Yurt. Five volunteer trail crew members helped Blaine get all the materials out to the site and build the stairs from May 18 through May 22, 2020. Thank you to Blaine, Paul Daggett, Dean Davidson, Marc Derosier, Joe Hackenmueller and Mark St. Amour for their hard work. The stairs turned out fabulously! Check out their work the next time you reserve the River Trail Yurt.

Once again, our intrepid Eagle River Rotarians came out in May to clean up the garden beds and areas around the Nature Center. The group has been volunteering for so many years that they know exactly what needs to be done. The organization also donated $500 toward buying plants to beautify the outdoor area. We can't thank them enough for their enthusiasm and support.
