Cowboy Pledge Snyderville Basin Millennium Trail Clean Up

On June 27, 2013 Cowboy Pledge volunteers joined in an effort to help control the spread of thistles that are taking over parts of the Snyderville Basin Millennium Trail. This premier hiking and biking trail winds through the Park City and Kimball Junction areas and is used year round by many residents and visitors. Part of this paved trail runs parallel to Overland Drive and is right across the street from Liberty Peak Apartments in Park City, Utah. The west side of this section of the trail was the main focus of an enthusiastic group of Cowboy Pledge volunteers. This group included management staff and residents from Liberty Peak Apartments and the management staff and family members from Liberty Station Apartments in Heber City, Utah.

The Cowboy Pledge leadership gave instructions on how to safely tackle this thorny project and provided gloves, shovels and other tools to accomplish the work. The volunteers worked together to dig out the smaller plants and to cut down the larger ones and then dig out the roots. They used pitchforks to stack the dying plants in piles making sure to avoid the thorny leaves and stems. By the time the project was finished they had removed hundreds of these noxious weeds. This effort, combined with weed treatment provided by Snyderville Basin, should result in a significant reduction of the spread of thistles in this area.

At the conclusion of this event refreshments were served and a drawing for prizes donated by Cowboy Properties capped off the evening. Cowboy Pledge offers their sincere thanks to each volunteer for helping to maintain and improve this section of the Snyderville Basin Millennium trail.

Cowboy Properties sponsors Cowboy Pledge and invites all of our apartment community residents to participate in upcoming Cowboy Pledge events. Please watch for the flyers that will be delivered to your door and take advantage of these fun opportunities to become involved in the community.
