Volunteers have been trying to clear out some of the trees at Donald Rock to make a better view of the rock — as seen in historic photos that we have. Mike Healy volunteered his group to help out. Mike wanted to do something for Donald Park so he paid three people from his group and he volunteered their time. Last year they worked two half-days and this year one half-day.
Mike brought along a beautiful team of well trained horses to help pull the logs down the side of the Rock to an open area. It was very interesting, and educational, for our group of volunteers to watch them operate. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped, we will now have a better view of the historic Donald Rock, also called the Preachers Cap at one time.
The name of Mike’s group is “Adaptive Restoration” which maintains a network of highly-skilled ecologists, land stewards, and professionals ready to meet the needs of your project. You may want to check-out their website: www.adaptiverestoration.com to get a better idea of what they do.
