Hi everyone: there's been a lot of activity on the Hilltop lately:
We've been working to clear a lot of old demolition debris scattered around the loop road (broken lampposts, scrap metal, concrete chunks, etc.), filling up 2 County dumpsters. And now we're going for a 3rd.
We also had a very successful moonlight hike (45 attendees!); even the elusive timberdoodle (aka American Woodcock ) cooperated with mating calls and flight displays.
