TRAILS — A great turnout of 67 volunteers worked this morning to pack tons of branches and debris off the bluff below High Drive in an effort to make the popular South Hill trails more resistant to a major fire.
The branches have been trimmed and piled by a smaller group of dedicated volunteers organized this summer by the Friends of the Bluffs.
By noon, the amount of material piled up along High Drive for city crews to pick up was impressive.
The bluffs are in better shape for their effort and the slope and neighborhoods are safer.
Sponsors offered some neat prizes to help reward the volunteers.
