Earth Day Restoration And Cleanup

Earth Day is coming up very quickly.  If you haven’t made plans to participate, please consider volunteering:

 

Earth Day 2017 provides an opportunity for all of us to do something meaningful for our planet by giving back to the state parks in our communities. Thousands of volunteers will be needed throughout California to assist with projects such as campfire center improvements, habitat restoration, native garden conservation, fence building, trail maintenance and beach cleanup.

We encourage you to join us on this important occasion, to do your part to restore and care for the places where we live, work, and play for this and future generations.

Over the past 18 years, 83,785 participants have built bridges, split rail fences and boardwalks, conducted river, lake and beach cleanups, restored trails and habitats with native plants, and installed recycling bins and irrigation systems. These accomplishments would not be possible without the support of our members, park users, dedicated community volunteers and our corporate sponsors, whose generous contributions provide the funding and in-kind support needed to achieve the program’s goals.

We’ve had snow on and off again but not any accumulation to speak of.  I have however heard many more police sirens than is usual for Twain Harte.  Well, at least I assume it’s police, could be the ambulance, we hope not.

English: Field in or just outside of Twain Har...

Winter fun up the hill from Twain Harte, California

It’s still 37 degrees in Soulsbyville, but the higher you go, the more the temperature drops.  It’s currently 28 degrees F. in Twain Harte right now. Cold enough for the roads to freeze.  Be sure to slow down on these mountain roads, it’s easy enough to hit a patch of ice and spin out of control.  You could end up in tree or worse.

Friday Snowplay will be opening!  I hope all you snowbunnies have fun out there on the tubes. The trip up and back should be a good one. Things can happen. Be sure you are prepared for the weather, you never know when your going to have to wait for a tow truck.  Assuming of course you have cell service with which to call.

You can find many Winter Driving Emergency Survival Tips here. Be safe!

Happy Thanksgiving!
