Nine AmeriCorps volunteers were honored Saturday afternoon by grateful city groups and environmental conservationists at Linwood Nature Preserve in Gainesville. The group of young people from all corners of the U.S., including Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Oregon, spent four weeks cutting trails at Linwood Nature Preserve along with volunteers from the Redbud Project, a grass-roots community conservation organization. Although the trails aren’t technically open to the public, people are still welcome to come explore, Margaret Rasmussen of the Redbud project said.
