The trails at Amy’s Park got a shiny new accessory – reflective trail markers – thanks to an amazing crew of volunteers from Novo Nordisk. On Monday, they divided and conquered, covering more than 5 miles of trails to remove old markers and replace them with our new markers that are more user friendly, especially to those who have a color vision deficiency.
Did you know that about 8% of all men and 0.5% of all women have some degree of color vision deficiency? These new markers SAY the color on them, so there’s no guessing if you’re on the right trail. We will eventually switch all of the LGLC trails to these new markers – if you get out and see the new markers, let us know what you think!
We also thank all of our many volunteers who help in so many ways, year-round! Hundreds of volunteers put in thousands of hours of their time to help with the Hike-A-Thon and Amy’s Race, fundraising events and database work, special committees, trail stewardship and invasive species management. Thank you!
