Not all the work at the Francis Beidler Forest is glamorous! There is a considerable amount of maintenance work that must be accomplished to keep the facility open and informational. Lumber on the boardwalk periodically needs replacing; trees fall through the boardwalk; vegetation reaches into the driveway, boardwalk and canoe trail; buildings need painting, potholes in the driveway need filling; boundary lines need get the idea.

Today, it was time to freshen the paint on the signs identifying various trees and shrubs along the boardwalk. Brad and Pete, the seasonal naturalists, braved the fumes and are now experts in the black art of lettering.
