Two footbridges destined for the Natural Pine Forest trail off the Dixie Mainline were framed and the decking was pre-cut by Ranger Jason Coates, Bill Price, 9-year-old Tristan and Debbie Meeks in the shade at the Weeks compound. The bridges will be transported to the trail and set in place on a future work day, probably in May. If you would like to help please contact the Friends.
