Trimming Eyebrows with Hurricane Island

Grafton Notch State Park’s Eyebrow Trail is the site of an ongoing project to replace trail structures, improve drainage, and add stone staircases. Maine Conservation Corps Trail Crews spent two weeks on the Eyebrow Trail this year, and work is planned to continue into next year.

On October the 26th, Senior Team Leader Kat Kelley got some off-season help with this project from students of the Hurricane Island Outward Bound program. Kat lead the Outward Bound students and replaced old bog bridging, added stepping stones, cleared and improved drainage structures, and improved the trail corridor.

Outward Bound is an international outdoor education program. The MCC has worked with the Hurricane Island Outward Bound Program in the past. This year’s project involved a crew of eight Outward Bound students and instructors.20151028_100842

We hope that that the Maine Conservation Corps can continue to be a source of great experience for Outward Bound students for years to come. It was great working with all of you. Special thanks to Alex Strong of the Hurricane Island Outward Bound for reaching out to us.
