The Douglas County Master Gardeners sponsored a workday at the Nature Trail behind the new courthouse on Saturday, March 22, from 8:00 until 12:30.  Approximately 70 volunteers came to help which included the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and their leaders.  Also present to instruct and to feed the volunteers were the Master Gardeners, two arborists, and the Douglas County Extension Agent, Kevin Livingston.  Besides moving a mountain of mulch to the trails below them, the scouts enjoyed a walk along the trails with an educational presentation by arborists Ginger Watson and Randy Cooper.  The Master Gardeners encourage all residents to come out and enjoy this beautiful trail.
