The Dragon's Teeth Special Ops team, led by Don Mills, has been busy removing bollards like these that were so close to the trail they were safety hazards. His group started at the north end of the trail last December, removing "dragon's teeth" at the trail's edge with the help of an ODNR crew. They returned to this project last month, removing an estimated 200 more of the bollards as they moved south to Morrow. The bollards were originally installed to keep vehicles off the trail, but motorists today are familiar with the trail and the "teeth" are no longer needed.
This buried culvert (left) north of Adams Rd. couldn't fulfill its intended purpose of directing water under, rather than over, the trail--until Pete Carey cleared it (right).
Last month we showed the brush being removed from this berm in Miamiville. Bill Schwinn and his team (right) reseeded at just the right time, and now the grass is up! (left)
