The team had an exciting start to the week doing depth gauge recording in an unexplored area of the park. This simple exercise of measuring water depth every 10 meters turned into a wet and wild adventure. To everyone’s surprise, this portion of the park has a very uneven mat, meaning one minute water was ankle deep and the next you may fall in a three foot hole. At times, the crew was wading hip deep in some fairly cold water. Despite the unfavorable conditions, the team had a great time and completed all the areas they were working in. The rest of the week consisted of tree removal at the Old Hotel site and chainsaw review where the team had the opportunity to go over some of the techniques they learned in training and fell some larger trees. Lots of progress was made this week with a variety of work from beginning to end.
