Work began at 8:00 am. We resumed where we left off last week along Karnes. Here Paul Pearce and Scott Burnett are aided by one of the sponsored workers in continuing to clear the area west of the previously “liberated” cottonwood. There’s a spring nearby that feeds a marsh that is frequented by a variety of birds.
This weekend, we are grateful for the generosity of Scott Burnett and Joan A. Riffel who teamed up to fund 4 fine workers for 6 hours, Jodi Brown showed up again for a mid-morning treat of fresh cut melon. Her son Addison along with Randy Moore and Paul Pearce were back. Miles set up the work supplies and he and Curt grilled brats for lunch.
And new folks from Valentine were there but I failed to get the names. Please identify yourselves.

Bushwhackers on July 17 included Manuel Lopez, Miguel from Lawrence, Scott Burnett, Peter Meier, Curt Watkins, Miles Krivena, Mike, Tim and several others. Officer Sean Finn brought a community service crew to help out.
Make a point to drive by both the work site at the end of the brick road, and along Valentine Road to see the results so far. Consider getting involved with the growing group as we begin to think about the Master Plan for Roanoke Park.

Enjoy the park, and stay safe. While Kansas City's mask mandate has been lifted, our area's vaccination rate and the emergence of new variants calls for maintaining caution to reduce transmission. Please enjoy the park responsibly by spreading out. The Westport-Roanoke Community Center is open again with normal hours after its recent construction closure. Please click their link above and call for the latest info. Here are the latest KCMO COVID-19 updates from the city. To avoid damaging trails, check Trail Status before biking or hiking off road. ("Rozarks" = Roanoke Park's 2.5 miles plus Rosedale's 3.5 miles.)
