We spent all of Friday being the eyes and ears for our Rangers. First, we biked our favorite three-mile stretch of trail, the River Trail parallel to the Schuylkill. This trail is used heavily throughout the entire day and is isolated from the rest of the park, so choosing to patrol this area was strategic as well as pleasant. We were greeted by members of the Natural Resource division along the way during their session of Weed Warriors along the banks of the river. They showed us some snakes that they had found while pulling Mile-a-Minute, which was exciting for both of us. We finished our day with LE on Friday by canoeing down the river on patrol. We found two young males using a jet ski who were very apologetic once they were made aware that no jet skiing is allowed (despite there being a sign at the boat launch). Friday was a good introduction to the typical occurrences a LE Ranger at Valley Forge may encounter.
