    Tiger Work Party report - with pics

    We had a great work party yesterday out on Tiger. This is one of a series of work parties this winter to finalize the upgrades on the Preston RR Trail by getting water from flowing down the trail but keeping the tech (or adding to it).

    As usual, it was a super solid group of people who showed up to help out.

    Katie, Nick and crew checking out one of about five spots we worked on yesterday. Water was literally oozing out of the hillside and then flowing down the trail. We channeled into a drain and then built up the trail tread so it'll stay dry.

    The forest had a classic NW feel.

    Ivar, Holly and Tyler went and scoured the hillsides for 1-man and 2-man boulders that would anchor the rollers, dips and drains that will channel water off the trail while keeping the trail interesting.

    Even though this is working forest, there's some bigger trees and huge snags in this zone.

    Evergreen represent!

    Thanks everyone who came out, this was a great crew and we got a ton done!

    Just a side note to anyone who is wondering if they're fit for trail work. You are! We had two kiddos and then a guy with a gimpy back who just got in people's way and took pictures (me). No matter your size, age, experience or condition, you're more than welcome to come and do trail work with Evergreen!

    Word. I would get paid for a weekday workparty, plus my employer would match my hours/pay as a donation to evergreen. We all know that's going to make a bigger difference than my actual presence!
