Volunteers Needed to Help With Nature Trail


The Virgin Islands Resource Conservation & Development Council, Inc. (V.I. RC&D) is getting closer to the completion of the outdoor education pavilion at the Estate Adventure Nature Trail.

But volunteers are still needed Sunday to help complete construction of the new pavilion. And help is being sought to stabilize and repair the new bridge and to clear debris along the Nature Trail.

Organizers are asking volunteers to come out from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. to help enhance and maintain this community resource.

Volunteers should bring gloves and wear clothing and footwear suitable for working in the bush. Water, snacks and tools will be provided.

All students seeking community service hours, teachers, hikers, birders, ecologists, researchers and St. Croix nature lovers who want to help restore and expand the Estate Adventure Nature Trail are encouraged to join the field day.

The trail is located in the central part of the island south of the Department of Agriculture grounds in Estate Lower Love directly off the Queen Mary Highway.

The goal is to complete building all bridges, opening up paths of the trail, and any other repairing needed to be done on the trail. Olasee Davis, project manager, said by the end of summer the trail should be open for hikers and walkers. He added this all depends on the assistance of private, local, federal, and volunteers in the community.

For more information about the trail contact Davis at 692-4053 or [email protected] or V.I. Resource Conservation & Development Council office, 692-9632 or [email protected].
