The new shelter has been completed!
We would like to thank Kevin Kleinschmidt at the Lincoln Country Forestry Department for the generous donation of the concrete for the shelter floor and his crew for clearing the area for the shelter.
We also need to thank the many members of the club that have worked hard on the sawing of the logs, the assembly of the building, putting the roof on, the stain crew that was absolutely covered with stain by the end of the day and those that worked to install the led lights which make the shelter so useable after dark. Thanks also go out to the local bike club who donated materials for the roof of the shelter. Thank you all so much for your help, we couldn't have done it without all of you!
The forestry service will be evaluating the Garlic Mustard situation again in the spring of 2018. See info below for Garlic Mustard facts.
The Underdown Horse Club and Lincoln County Forestry needs your help.
The Underdown forest has been invaded.
The culprit the nasty and destructive plant named "Garlic Mustard". Two sections of trail have been detoured and several more patches have been found in the parking lot and campsites. Campsites 3, 10 & 11 have been closed completely and the other areas fenced off for spraying. Please check out the link below and the pictures posted on the Bulletin Board at the trail head to learn how to identify this nasty predator.
If you find any garlic mustard on the trails as you are riding please mark the location and contact the Forestry Department or one of the Horse Club members immediately. If the plants can be found early before they get to the seed producing stage, we can save the Underdown Trails. We need your help to prevent the spread of this stuff.
