2018 Service Summary

University of Wisconsin brought in the New Year in January by pulling invasive honeysuckle along Abrams Creek in the Smokies, removing invasive privet and honeysuckle in the Baby Jungle at Sequoyah Museum, and spending a morning with a Cherokee elder in the Snowbird Cherokee community learning about Cherokee history, culture, and language. They were supposed to work on building hiking trails with the Cherokee elder, but the ground was frozen too hard to do trail work! March brought Bellarmine University, Georgia Tech, University Delaware, and University California San Diego. Students cleared storm debris and overgrown vegetation from Cherokee burial grounds, did campground maintenance (160 sites) at Cades Cove Campground in the Smokies, campground maintenance (180 sites) at Indian Boundary Campground in Cherokee National Forest, built hiking trails with a Cherokee elder, did rock work for creek erosion control at a Cherokee home, performed rock work and trail maintenance on Rainbow Falls Trail in the Smokies, colored Easter eggs with the Snowbird seniors, did the first-ever cleanup on Turkey Creek in Cherokee National Forest (sofas, water heaters, tires, stoves, TVs, bicycles, construction debris, over 90 large trash bags of trash, did maintenance on the Fading Voices Festival grounds in Snowbird, pulled mountains of English ivy, honeysuckle, and privet in some wetlands in the Smokies, and removed invasive vegetation in The Baby Jungle at Sequoyah Museum. Several groups also helped move furniture, equipment, and supplies from storage trailers into the newly renovated Sequoyah Museum building. A Grand Opening for the new museum will be held some time in Summer 2018.
