NEWS: More restoration finished in April, 2016! We repaired more markers, and supplied ten new supplemental markers in front of ten old markers that have deteriorated beyond restoration.

NEWS: We removed some very large DEAD trees in October, 2017. They were in danger of falling and hurting both people and markers.
