PRESCOTT – More than 15 volunteers assembled in Magee Park on Saturday, Oct. 16 to clean up garbage and learn about the ecological threats of buckthorn.
They also heard stories from Gordy and Julie Magee about parties and family gatherings that occurred at the site when it was private property decades ago. At that time, it had a pavilion, shooting range and a paved road leading into the valley with enough room for 20 cars to park.
Now it is a public space overgrown with buckthorn that needs love and attention to reclaim it from invasive plants like buckthorn. _ The dedicated volunteers comprising the Coulee River Trails collaborative have a lot of love to give and will continue to pursue plans in partnership with the City of Prescott to make Magee Park marvelous once more. Coulee River Trails_is focusing on Magee Park as they explore the possibility of creating a regional trail system in the Prescott area._ The group is seeking feedback about trail use, interests and recreation options in the Prescott community. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and is available online at_http://bit.ly/3zKufRk.
