Last week many small trees were found marked with yellow paint in the areas of proposed disc golf fairways. The marks are low to the ground and not visible from the trails. It now appears that over 650 young trees have been marked in this manner.

A number of small trees have also been pushed down as directional markers between holes. Some downed trees also appear to have been cut by an axe.

The Park Director was notified about the markings last week.
To date the only reply back has been that they are looking into it.
