CEA has purchased and donated two 100-gallon stock tanks with floats, 2 wheelbarrows, and ramps for the manure trailer. Thanks to all who have contributed to the Green Valley Horse Camp Fund.

· Hual Cu Cuish Equestrian Staging Area (located just off Milk Ranch Rd, by Lake Cuyamaca): The turnaround area is now flat and inviting for larger vehicles. Enjoy riding in the north end of the park.

· Adopt a work party – Do you enjoy the trails of Cuyamaca? They desperately need your help. Take one day out of 365 to give to the park. Encourage your club membership to volunteer for a
workparty date. Information on the CEA website Trail Maintenance Unit really could use some help! This time of year is perfect for working on the trails.

· Trail conditions – Great trail riding conditions except for falling trees during windy weather. Be prepared to backtrack if you can’t pass a fallen tree. Reminder to use fire roads after rains to give the trails a chance to firm up so as to prevent trail damage. Enjoy your park!
