The Met Branch Trail Gets a New Coat of Paint

Saturday brought brief rain and thunder but did nothing to dissuade 12 amazing painters from joining the Trail Ranger team in cleaning up the Metropolitan Branch Trail.

We were able to remove graffiti from three long walls on the trail, remove invasive Tree of Heaven from the trail side and tidy up the S St. pocket park. The difference that 6 gallons of paint, many enthusiastic hands and a few roller brushes made in short order was impressive.
