Terrific progress was made this month on the Nancy Lake State Recreation Area Cross-Country Ski Trails. The project was funded by a Mat-Su Trails and Parks Foundation grant. A cutting crew from Denali State Park, including Park Specialist Justin DiPaola-Allen and Natural Resource Technician Carter Forney, were assisted by students from the Mat-Su Career and Technical High School Forestry program, who provided some muscle for the project. They accomplished some timber felling, brush cutting, and hauling debris off the trail at an accelerated rate. Thanks to all for the help!
