|Downed Chinaberry tree tackled by SMGA trail crew.|
Wind, drought and flood have taken their toll and pulled trees out of the sloping landscape, blown-down tall chinaberry trees and generally impacted the four trails that total less than a mile. The City of San Marcos Urban Forester, Kelly Eby, joined the crew and provided guidance for the morning's efforts. The SMGA trail crew also discussed future improvement plans with her.

Last week we cleaned up the western section of Spring Lake natural area now open after the Golden Cheek Warbler nesting season closure with weed whacking, lopping, and other maintenance chores. If you haven't experienced Roadrunner, Porcupine, Blue Stem and Centipede trails in Spring Lake the access at N. LBJ is now open although street access is limited due to construction. --LJ
