This will allow the Texas Forest Service to clear 5 acres adjacent to the current savanna restoration area where we plan to expand the Savanna.
The machine they will use is a cedar eater and can throw large debris up to 100 feet away. It will be too dangerous to allow anyone on these trails while this area is being cleared.
Temporary signage is posted at several locations to let people know that the trail closure is imminent. Soon we will post more “permanent” signage, t-posts, orange construction fencing and other barricades at each point of entry.
We apologize for this inconvenience as we make additions and improvements to Phil Hardberger Park. Please bear with our construction and look forward to a bigger Savanna coming soon!!
