Our second Fairhaven Trail Work Party got the trail cleared. The CREW for the day included Charis Weathers, Kym Cummings, Loren Adkins, Kirsten Wert, Keith Kemplin, Patsy Yaude, Jane Yaude, Rai Hughes-Davies, Bill Hotson, Jen Barker, Joel Haggen and Michael Lilliquist. CREW Leader Michael Plummer with Rae Edwards and Anna from COB Parks and Recreation. Recreation Northwest’s staff, April Claxton and Todd Elsworth were out there too!
The perspective of the Work CREW above was taken by Executive Director (and amateur photographer) Todd Elsworth. Below he’s showing off where he got the shot from:

Thank you Cowden!
We have some big piles to spread!
More on 18th Street!
Here’s a time-lapse walk through of the trail on August 15th, 2015. It shouldn’t make you too dizzy…
