Friends of the Parks, Duluth “E-Newsletter”

Over the next seven months people who work with grades K-12 in both formal & informal settings will have access to free workshops through the Science Institute for Educators series hosted by the Great Lakes Aquarium in Duluth, & the Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center in Finland, MN. “During the 2-hour workshops educators will join experts to discuss the consequences of the June 2012 flood that drenched the western end of Lake Superior,” said Marte Kitson, aquatic invasive species specialist with the University of Minnesota Sea Grant Program. “The increasing frequency of extreme weather events in the Arrowhead Region of Minnesota has city officials, resource managers, & scientists scrambling to improve our ability to recover from & adapt to a changing water regime. It seems important to let educators know what is happening so that they can share it with their students.” Attendees will receive lesson plans aligned to Minnesota academic standards and access to related activities. Educators who attend at least six of the workshops are eligible for a $100 stipend & CEUs. Registration is required; space is limited. Register online http://www.glaquarium.org/education-programs/teacher-workshops/External Link or contact Katie Fritz: kfritz@glaquarium.org, (218) 740-2027.

1 - What's Happening.....Opportunities to get involved.....

Volunteers Needed!

Fall Buckthorn Brigade - Fall is one of the best times to pull buckthorn – that pesky invasive shrub that abounds in our parks and on our trails. While other trees are changing colors and losing their leaves, buckthorn remains a dark green. In preparation, Parks & Recreation got some new tools: five new weed wrenches. According to seasonal groundskeeper, Luke Moravec, these weed wrenches “make the process not only easier, but the end result more permanent.”  Oct 15, 22 at 4-6pm, and Saturday, Oct 20, 10-noon. All pulls at Hartley Park and Nature Center, 3001 Woodland Ave. Registration encouraged to ensure enough tools & equipment. Contact Cheryl 218-393-9879 or cskafte@duluthmn.gov to sign up. All ages welcome, no experience needed. Dress for the weather; bring a water bottle. 

Rose Tipping at the Rose Garden - The cold wind is starting to blow & cooler temperatures are settling in. For the roses at the Rose Garden that can only mean one thing: it’s time to go to bed for the season. Join City of Duluth staff & the Lake Superior Rose Society in “tipping the roses.” Whether you are experienced at the task or just want to learn, there will be someone there to teach you, so previous knowledge is not necessary. Oct 20 - 9am-12noon; Oct 23 3-6pm. Meet at the Rose Garden, near the bathrooms. Free parking adjacent the Rose Garden. Registration encouraged. Contact Cheryl 218-393-9879 or cskafte@duluthmn.gov to sign up. All ages welcome, no experience necessary. Dress for the weather, bring a shovel/garden fork (if you have them) & a water bottle to stay hydrated. Tools & gloves provided.

Got leaves? The City of Duluth Parks Division is asking residents to bring their bagged leaves to the Rose Garden. The bags of leaves are used to protect the hundreds of rose bushes throughout the winter months. Please place the bags in the designated spot near the entrance to the park. 

Bentleyville Transformation Begins at Bayfront: Volunteers Needed  - It may feel like fall outside, but it will soon start to look a lot more like Christmas at Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth. The Bentleyville Tour of Lights is a massive free annual family holiday light show, complete with Santa, the tallest Christmas tree in the Midwest, holiday music & fire pits for roasting marshmallows. Approximately 200,000 people visited the display last season. This year, the display opens on No 17 & will illuminate Bayfront Festival Park until Dec 26. Such an event takes a tremendous amount of volunteer power as well! Anyone who is able to lend a hand with set-up is encouraged to stop down to Bayfront Park now thru Oct 21 from 9 am – 4 pm & from 8 am-4 pm every Saturday & Sunday. Lunch is served compliments of a local restaurant. Volunteers are also needed Oct 17, 5– 8 pm. Volunteer preregistration not required, must be at least 18 years old to help out. No experience needed. Simply stop down at Bayfront Festival Park and be assigned to a project. Mary at 218-740-3522 or mary@bentleyvilleusa.org or www.bentleyvilleusa.orgExternal Link 

Updates on What has been Happening:

The trail systems in Duluth can lead to a lot of places, but Mayor Don Ness is hoping they'll lead to economic development. Read the article and watch the video at: http://www.northlandsnewscenter.com/news/local/Duluths-Trails-A-Path-to-Economic-Success-173218471.htmlExternal Link

Spirit Mountain Builds a new “Flow Trail” - check it out at:

http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2012/10/01/human-interest/duluth-builds-trails/External Link  and http://www.northlandsnewscenter.com/news/local/Mountain-Bike-Enthusiasts-Build-Gravity-Flow-Trail--170855431.html?m=y&smobile=yExternal Link

The Eco-Rotary worked with the City of Duluth to install new mile markers along Duluth’s Lakewalk. Find out more about the EcoRotary at http://www.duluthsuperiorecorotary.orgExternal Link/

Hartley Park Mountain Bike Trails Update: COGGS hired Shawn Miller to reroute some 8000 feet of mountain bike trails that had not been engineered for bicycles when they were first assigned to serve as bike trails a dozen years ago. The new trails are well-designed and purpose-built for mountain bikes (and hikers, runners, dog walkers, etc.) City of Duluth’s Seasonal Groundskeeper, David Markman lent assistance, as did quite a few volunteers.

Flood Recovery efforts in Chester Park: You’ll notice work being done by contractors to shore up the banks of Chester Creek where flooding had scoured the stream. New pavement and roadway is being installed as well. Duluth Stream Corps has been planting where many of the trees were cut earlier this year, and, they are planting on the slope failures that aren’t too steep and have already ‘settled.’ IF YOU NEED WOOD CHIPS: there is a pile of wood chips in Chester Park that is free for the taking. The pile is in the soccer field area. Bring your own wheel barrows.

Flood Recovery efforts in Mission Creek, Hartley Park, Chester Park, Congdon Park. Trails Solutions, the trail building arm of IMBA, the International Mountain Bike Association, will be in Duluth for several weeks. They will focus first on Mission Creek, where nearly 50% of the proposed bike trails were wiped out due to slope failures. They will also be looking at re-routing perhaps two miles of hiking trails, including both the ‘city’s’ trails and the Superior Hiking Trail. Then they will move to the other areas.

Flood Recovery efforts on the Ski Trails. Along with the work day (below), Parks Maintenance Staffers Darin Franckowiak and Billy Davis have been replacing blown out culverts & bridges on ski trails. Magney, Hartley, Spirit & Lester should be good to go by the time the snow flies. However, a reroute in Lester must also be completed as the Lester River overlook is quite a bit closer to the trail than it was before. We might be needing volunteers to assist. Stay tuned.

Flood Recovery efforts on the Amity Trail. This week, the Soil & Water Conservation District will begin working on cleaning out culverts along the Amity Creek Trail behind Hawk Ridge. They will also be replacing culverts in an already planned pre-flood project. They will also be working to shore up some slope failures caused by the flood. The trail will be closed temporarily for this project.

Flood Recovery Efforts in Duluth’s Trout (& other) Streams: BARR & LimnoTech engineering firms have been hired to address issues in the more than 60 streams in Duluth. BARR is handling the eastern streams & LimnoTech the western. Currently, they have surveyed all the stream damage, including using photos taken by dozens of volunteers soon after the storm. They are prioritizing & categorizing the issues in the streams to go after grant monies that might be available. Also, they will be leading efforts with ‘coldwater’ folks to look at solutions, especially in Duluth’s 16 trout streams. Curious about which are trout streams? Go to http://www.lakesuperiorstreams.orgExternal Link/ and learn all about ALL of our Duluth streams! More informant will be coming.

St. Scholastica's Community Day - October 3- The City of Duluth had ~ 200 students, staff & faculty from CSS out in the parks & on trails as part of the College of St. Scholastica's Community Day. A huge thank you goes out to City staff & their community partners in making the day a success. Projects included: Lakewalk landscaping projects led by Bob Dunsmore; Enger Park gardening projects led by Nola Honkala; Bayfront Park painting/landscaping & City Hall garden projects led by Dena Petite; Duluth Public Library, led by Susan Schumacher & Rich Jaworski (Duluth Children's Museum), had students doing prep work for the Storyland exhibit at the Main Library; Rose Garden projects led by Mary Tennis; Superior Hiking Trail flood recovery project led by Larry Sampson, Maintenance Director for the Duluth portion of the Superior Hiking Trail; Lester, Chester, Piedmont, Magney & Hartley Ski Trail flood recovery projects & trail brushing led by community partner Duluth XC Ski Club (Anne Flueckiger, John Ipsen, Les Martin, Steve Long, Andre Watt & Brian Bich); Chester Park flood recovery trail project led by Luke Moravec - hundreds of buckets of fill were hauled to washed out sections of trail; wheelbarrows of dirt were pushed up trails; weeds were pulled; waterbars were installed. Additional thanks to Jack Schade for arranging for material delivered to numerous locations around town (including a very tricky delivery to the Magney trails) & Shawna MullenEardley, City of Duluth MN GreenCorps member, who made sure that everyone had the tools they needed for the day to be a success. 

A groundbreaking ceremony for the new “Bob Pratt Pavilion” was held at the Jean Duluth Soccer Fields on Sept 19. This is a long-awaited addition to one of Duluth’s most used soccer complexes. 

A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony opening Duluth’s newest Park - was held on Sept 20 on top of the new wastewater holding tank. The park has magnificent vistas of the Lakewalk & of course, Lake Superior. To access the park, enter through Lake Place Park or near the Endion building and take the stairs to the park.

A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the new Enger Park Gazebo - The new timber-frame gazebo at Enger Park was officially opened on October 12th. The gazebo was constructed over the summer with the help of Timbers Guild which incorporated a historical method of timber framing construction. The gazebo hosts one of Lake Superior’s most amazing vistas.

Tree Planting Update - During the month of September, 87 volunteers of all ages (including the Lincoln Park Boys & Girls Club, students from UMD, N.E.R.C.C., Latter Day Saints, & other "regular" community members) planted 80 trees (maples, oaks, Japanese tree lilacs, & crabapples) in the boulevards of Endion, East Hillside, Central Hillside, Lincoln Park, & Morgan Park neighborhoods. 

Chester Park Mini Master Plan Open House Held - The public was invited to attend the Parks & Recreation Chester Park Mini Master Plan Open House on Sept 27 at the Chester Park Chalet. The purpose of the open house was to provide the opportunity for community members to discuss with the consultant plans for the Chester Park Mini Master Plan which City staff & community members have suggested. This plan will serve as a guide for changes & park improvements in the future. A comment form is available at http://www.duluthmn.gov/parks/mini_masterplan/resources/chester/Chester_Questionnaire.pdf

Web Woods is getting some upgrades: Marshall School Students will be on the trail in Web Woods, our now second-oldest park, dedicated this past May. They will be spreading wood chips on the trail. That same day, volunteers from United Health Care will be working with city staff to remove buckthorn in the park. A busy day for a little place!

2 - “Spotlight on the Parks” - Flood Recovery Update: Trail Recovery Action Corps

The Trail Recovery “Action” Corps was born out of anonymous donation to the Community Action Duluth to help out with recovery from the flood of 2012. They were able to hire five people for five weeks of trail repair and work from August 20 to September 25.  The TRAC Team members included Jeremie Benoit, Eldon “Donny” Krosch, Bill Rusk, Gerald Sayers, Luke Sharman, & Luke Moravec (City of Duluth Team Supervisor.) 

The TRAC Team gave 723 hours of work, along with several volunteers who gave 147.5 hours of service. The team worked on trails in Enger Park, Lincoln Park, Hawk Ridge & Chester Park. The TRAC team worked everyday to restore our trails that were so severely damaged in the Flood of 2012. While more work is yet to come, they made HUGE progress towards restoration of our community’s favorite trail systems. http://www.communityactionduluth.org/news.html#trail_recoveryExternal Link

In Lincoln Park: Five culverts replaced, removed, or reset; Fifteen check dams placed to divert future precipitation; Six sections of cribbing added to prevent erosion; Twelve meters of riprap incorporated to prevent erosion; Fifty-four meters of trail reroutes to avoid unsalvageable treadway; Seventy-four meters of soil & limestone utilized to level wash-outs. Additional improvements in Lincoln Park: Removed two precariously hanging “widow makers” over the trail ; Filled north side wash-out at SHT bridge; Fortified soft edge of trail with 400+ lb stone slab; Broke down disruptive berms to fill trail naturally; Reset stone slabs to create better spacing between existing steps; and Removed 8ft by 8ft section of fencing in the way of the main trail.

In Enger Park: Three check dams replaced to divert future precipitation, material moved back into position that had washed out during the rains of June 19 and 20, 2012. 

In Chester Park: Five culverts replaced, removed, or reset; Fourteen sections of cribbing added to prevent erosion; Seventy-Five landscape timber steps added to main trail and trailheads; Thirteen C-steps added in various locations; Two hundred and sixty-nine meters of soil and limestone utilized to level wash-outs.  Additional improvements in Chester Park: Built four sections of wood fence to block two unnecessary, and potentially dangerous trails; Painted railings at “Big Ten” bridge, and at gazebo entrance at 6th Street; Filled three washed-out C-steps with limestone and fortified with riprap; Removed unstable 20ft trail bridge, closed trail; Exterminated yellow jacket nests and replaced fifteen railroad tie steps at “Big Ten” access; Cut and removed two large obstructive trees along trail, diameters measuring 20+ inches and 12+ inches.

In Hawk Ridge: Eighty-five meters of soil was utilized to level wash-outs on the Amity Trail.

We thank these participants of the Trails Recovery Action Corps and especially to Luke Moravec, City of Duluth Seasonal Groundskeeper, who worked with other city staff to get materials and supplies to the crew as they needed during this amazing period of work!
