Oh, and just as a reminder, this signage and building of a trail like this is the exact sort of thing that your MMBA membership dollars help pay for.
Just on River Bends we directly spent ~$55 on temporary signage (Cook's Signs Plus
gave us a great
price on these), ~$40 on consumable marking supplies (paint, tape, etc) for laying out the trail, ~$75 on bagels and coffee, and ~$50 on BBQ stuff for our first trail day.
On top of this there's the shared costs of a brush trimmer, fuel, the trailer, hand tools, bottled beverages (purchased by the case and spread across trail days), etc.
To date we've also got 354 hours of unpaid volunteer time into the project as well.
