The New Playground is Open!
Revitalization of the play area next to the barn was yet another EHA long-term project. Work began last summer and is now complete - thanks to hundreds of volunteer hours put in by Board members and residents.
The result is a playground that meets current safety codes, has an expanded footprint and new gravel base, and several new and updated activities. In addition, equipment designed for young toddlers has been added for the first time.

Bears and Foxes
Please do not leave trash cans out overnight during the months when bears are active (March-November). Wait to put cans out on the morning of pick-up. Bears' sense of smell is 100 times more sensitive than ours: bears can smell food five miles away. Bears also have great memories; once they find a food source, they will return, becoming a hazard to people and pets.
Please do not feed foxes or other wild animals. The ecosystem supplies adequate food for native species. According to Wildlife Officers, feeding wild animals develops dependency and encourages aggressive behavior towards pets and people.
