What is a work-bee?
A work-bee is a planned day when IHTA members and supporters gather to improve the horse trails and campground. We trim overhanging branches, clear fallen trees, repair wash-outs, pick up trash, clear debris on campsites, set picket posts, and clean out fire rings.
When bigger projects are in order, we work together with the DNR staff planning and executing whatever needs done.
We also have fun, building friendships with like minded riders, and share a meal.
**~** April 20 will be our 2nd 2019 Spring Workbee (rain date 4/27 (?) **~**
Please come help us build the Ionia Skills Course!
Our apologies - We have some catching up to do on WorkBee pics 2017, 2018 & 2019.
So much to do, we focus on the "doing" instead of the "recording". Hope you understand.
September 21, 2016 Board Members Robbin Stout, Carrie Platte, & Nancy Simmonds along with our Park Supervisor, Trevor McGinn repair the wash out on the Cart Trail.
April 9, 2016 Heavy over night snow buried much of what we had hoped to clean up in the campground, so a few of us just picked up the big stuff. Kurt & Shelby Lipka, Chris Blievernicht, and Curt Walls.
October 10, 2015 Board Members clean fire pits in the campground, trim and clear trails, and remove fallen trees before the Chili Cookoff weekend.
September, 2015 Robbin & Jay Stout single handidly (ok - two sets of hands!) install a culvert, gravel, and edging ( recycled- too short picket posts) to shore up a section of muddy trail.
