Officials say 37 adult and girl volunteers united for the day-long restoration project to improve the half-mile trail.








“It is thanks to wonderful volunteer groups like the Friends of Horton Hill that girls can have a continuum of enriching outdoor experiences,” said Jerilyn Hickey, Chief Development Officer at Girl Scouts of Western New York. “We thank our amazing volunteers and donors for their continued generosity to help build girls or courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.”

Volunteers prepared their bags, shovels, and rakes, sharpened their hedge trimmers, and revved-up their chainsaws to remove brush, debris, invasive species, and prune trees. The wood was recycled to be used as firewood.









Spring and fall “Do It Days” have been scheduled through 2021 with Girl Scouts, their parents and leaders, staff and other adult volunteers to be invited and encouraged to attend.
