Sustainable Trail Guide – TTOC August Update


I presented the updated version of this powerpoint to the Yough River Trail Council and was surprisingly well received. They had already begun ideas of their own on naturescaping, which is eliminating lawn areas for native plant species, in order to help local wildlife, conserve water, and reduce cost and maintenance. They also had started ideas of putting a rhododendron garden in the middle of a round-a-bout, beautifying an area surrounded by concrete. They had also showed interest in trying out some pesticide and herbicide alternatives. It was a successful presentation, and afterwards people came up and showed their interest in certain topics. The questionnaire regarding the most pertinent issues of the trail was helpful, and was filled out by almost everyone.
