could say the Skagit Land Trust can look at small logging, bug infestations the effects of climate change - <br />stewardship and conservation. No language like that currently in the contracts. Presenting to city council <br />hopefully by end of summer. We do not expect it to take too long to update. <br /> <br />Staff Reports: Excited to have seasonal help at the ACFL. <br /> <br />Bob: We have Ali Schuh and Gabe Apple working the forest lands this summer. They’ve done great work so <br />far with the trimming. Spent time over the holiday weekend - so far, they haven't had to deal with behavioral <br />issues much but they had a situation on Monday and dealt with it great and are eager to learn. We have a <br />volunteer work party this Saturday, June 5th, also as National Trails Day. We'll be up at trailhead #26 at 9am <br />and attacking scotch broom as much as we can. This past weekend, Friends of the Forest ambassadors were <br />at the whistle lake parking lot with information table and volunteers with no negative reports so all is good. <br />Coming up is city council with the Forest Land Management Plan after the critical areas ordinance discussion <br />is done. <br /> <br />Other Business: We won't be meeting in July - next meeting would be August 5th. City hall will be open June <br />14th 9am-1pm for a soft opening, and July 6th fully open. If there are face to face meetings to commence, we <br />can talk about when the Forest Advisory Board could meet up. Senior Center will be the last to open up at <br />the moment. We will know more in July. Nick: trail #206 closed to horses still? Trail #206 is part of storm <br />damage clean up from mid-january tied into the access to the dam. Because our consultant is looking for <br />some federal aid to clean up, we were asked to not clean it up otherwise it'll be funded differently. <br />Volunteers have just about cleaned it up, but there is a little area that is hard for horses to get through. <br />We're hoping for it to be fixed and cleaned soon. #204 - beginning of the south end of Whistle Lake past the <br />bridge - needs to be a little wider. <br /> <br />Meeting adjourned at approximately 6:34PM. <br /> <br /> <br />The NEXT MEETING will be held on Tuesday, August 5th, 2021, at 6:00 PM, virtually. <br /> <br />Respectfully submitted by, <br /> <br />Victoria Wong Approved: June 8, 2021 <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />
