Hiking trails get attention

Img30
The Student Conservation Association and the Friends of the VI National Park
teamed to work with 10 young people who spent a month on island paying
attention to some overgrown trails in the Park.  Brush was cleared,
water bars installed, trails rebuilt in parts of Cinnamon Bay, Reef
Bay
, Ram Head and Caneel Hill.  Jeffrey Glenn, a co-leader of the crew, told the St. John Source
there was a lot of needed work.  "We did everything from re-vegetation
to repair eroded areas to construction of stone stairs," he said.  A
St. Thomas resident was part of the group.  She was Henrietta Alexander.
The 17-year-old high school student explained to the Source, "I just
like helping the environment because I want to study environmental
science."
