The Sutton Lake staff successfully acquired eight days of assistance from an AmeriCorps Volunteer Team to focus on trail building.
AmeriCorps, a federal agency for community service and volunteerism missions are to unite individuals and organizations, strengthen communities, and positively impact lives.
The 10 person crew is made up of students from around the country and most recently provided services in more urban cities in the north.
The focus of the work is a 1.0 mile trail extension beginning at the end of current Sunrise Ridge and ending in the fields or wildlife openings of a recent Division of Wildlife Management Timber sale accessed via Bug Ridge Road.
The trail will provide hunters, hikers, and wildlife enthusiasts with the opportunity to access more of Sutton’s backcountry.
