Subject: Big Thank You!!



I want to give a BIG shout out to you and your efforts in rallying the troops to get the Carlton and parts of Lincer and Big Slough looking like a storm never hit!  Your efforts were instrumental in allowing for the preserves to open earlier than we had thought possible.  While staff held workdays clearing the main trails and firebreaks you were out there clearing the single-track trails and completing all the finer details that makes Carlton special to all.  Thank you for your time and effort to help get things back to a new normal!!

Thank you!!

Meghan Meyer
