Please continue to post updates.
I'd really appreciate opportunities to contribute time and or resources.
We have take advantage of both resources and are very much willing to give toward restoration and improvements.

Oxley and Redbud will remain closed till June 9. That could change and close for longer as staff deals with flood damage. It is unsafe to hike the trails. At the Oxley Nature Center, the boardwalk at Blackbird Marsh is destroyed. Along the Bird Creek trail you cannot find the trail. The loop of that trail will be closed permanently. At this time we are trying to wrap our brains around it. We will start having cleanup days very soon. Our part of Mohawk park is closed at this time.
Redbud Valley's boardwalk is also damaged. Trail is washed out and the entry to the parking area has deep ruts. Just bear with us.
