Despite the spring snowfall, the IMBA Trail Care Crew visit was a successful venture for all who attended. Thursday the Crew and ERTA leadership met at Swope Park for an assessment (in the warmth and sunshine).
Friday, the Trail Care Crew (Morgan and Steve Lommele) held a class for 29 Land Managers and Parks employees. Jackson County Parks & Recreation (Missouri), Johnson County Parks & Recreation (Kansas), the City of Kansas City Missouri Parks, the City of Liberty (Missouri), the City of Lenexa (Kansas) and Platte County Parks (Missouri) were represented in this session.
Saturday's session for volunteer trail builders was represented by mountain bicyclists, trail runners, hikers and equestrians totally 43 participates.
A big thanks to IMBA, the Trail Care Crew (Morgan and Steve Lommele), the City of Kansas City for the use of the awesome facilities at Swope Park, all the ERTA volunteers that helped pull this event together and to Earth Riders Mountain Bike Club for providing lunch from Chipotle on Saturday!
