BRR Ride booth

BRR Ride - February 4, 2017 

The BRR ride this past Saturday had a great turn out.  Participating in a RRVT/Connector booth was (from left to right), Curt Cable, DCCB Natural Resource Manager, Mike Wallace, Director DCCB, Larry Meacham , Let’s Connect committee, and Jill Brosnahan, Let’s Connect committee.  In addition to selling RRVT annual trail permits the number one point of conversation and questions revolved around the proposed RRVT to HTT connector project.  Director Wallace commented that he and staff have submitted 3 important grants over the last 2 months and they had a very good return on the end of the year donation envelope fundraiser.  “We are moving ahead in a positive direction but at a slow rate, we all wish the connector project was completed”.

Maple Boiling Off
Saturday, February 18, 2017
Sportsman Park, Dawson, IA
- Boiling off (the second program) is when we take the collected sap and heat it so the excess water evaporates. With a new, flat pan, this process should go much faster! Feel free to stop by to see and taste what’s going on, realizing that the tastiest results occur near the end.
