Earth Spirit to Design Trail System in Chaffee
Waste Management of Chaffee has turned over a $5000 grant to Earth Spirit Educational Services to be used in designing and maintaining trails at the Chaffee Wildlife Preserve. This property, owned by Waste Management, serves not only as a landfill buffer for nearby residents, but also provides a variety of important habitat for wildlife, including aquatic, grassland and mature forest communities. Work on the trail system should begin in Spring of 2012.
