The fire pit was already there,  we put up a fence around it so people would stop going there to burn things. There were debris from burnt garbage, at least one couch / mattress, and I even found a picture of the pope???



All of the bottles and cans were consolidated there by the cleaning crew. All of that stuff was spread out across the whole property and they are going to take it to the dump

I'm back in NY for a couple weeks and the rednecks have been at it again despite the snow.

3 pairs of trail posts got torn out and they've been doing donuts on the frozen pond.





In response I have started clearing out dead trees and trees that are growing to close to each other and tying them together with ropes to form barricades.

My step brother runs a snow plowing business so I paid him to come plow the road down to the nature preserve. It's an unmaintained dirt road down right next to a paved road so it had a big pile of snow in front of it which had to get moved first.



Then he plowed the whole road down to the property.



Then he made a 4-5 foot tall snow pile blocking the entrance to the property to stop ATVs and snowmobiles.



You can see the posts there from the old gate that got stolen, lol

Then Anomaly and snek came to help build more barriers. :D

I dropped some trees that were already dead or growing too close to each other. (Proper forest management is important!) Then we tied them all together with ropes, covered the knots in snow, and played catch with a 2500 foot ball of twine.





There are now 4 of these barriers on the property in addition to the snow wall.

Today my mom and I went up to the Wetfish nature preserve. She had never seen the property, so we went for a walk together.



While walking around the property I did an assessment of the barriers. There were fresh tire tracks in the snow outside of the property. It looks like somebody was riding around on an ATV yesterday, trying to get into the property. It was very satisfying to see all of the places where they approached the barriers and then turned around.





That's my mom, standing triumphantly in front of the back entrance barrier.

Here's an updated map!

Changelog:
- The cleaning crew did a good job of consolidating nearly all of the garbage on the property
- Most of the trail posts were ripped out and the gates were stolen
- Only one pair of trail posts remains, because they simply drove around it lol
- Lots of tree barriers added
- Some of the tree barriers around the perimeter have existed for months but were not previously listed
- Temporary snow barrier added

Good to know our effort was worth it =D
