GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY- The snow accumulated from last week's snow storm is being blown away by volunteers cleaning up the Traverse Area Recreational Trails.
Through partnerships with the City of Traverse City and volunteers, crews are working on keeping the trails safe and accessible to everyone. Once at least three inches of snow has accumulated on a trail, volunteers start working towards removing it.
Snow removal equipment, and shovels where the machinery isn't accessible are used to clear the snow until less than one inch is left. Crews started on Friday and have been working from Carter Road through downtown Traverse City to Bunker Hill Road.
If you would like to volunteer to help with the clean up efforts all winter long you can call TART, email Lee at Lee@traversetrails.org , or sign up online www.traversetrails.org.
