DAGSBORO — A group of dedicated volunteers with the newly formed Friends of Holts Landing State Park defied frigid temperatures Jan. 10 to plan and survey the work they’ll be tackling on the park’s trails.
More than a dozen people gathered at the state park in Dagsboro, where Sen. Gerald Hocker, R-Ocean View, supplied coffee and donuts to keep the volunteers going. State Rep. Ron Gray, R-Selbyville, and Superintendent of Delaware Seashore Parks Doug Long joined Trail Boss Laf Erickson, Volunteer Coordinator Lee Temby, Eagle Scout candidate Thomas Polk and other volunteers to begin clean-up work on the trails.
The group will meet in the Friends room of the Holts Landing Maintenance Building from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 14, and each second Saturday through May. All visitors and volunteers are welcome, and no experience is necessary.
