On September 23, a group of 16 employees from Andersen Windows and Doors cleared several miles of trails around Turkey Run Park. The volunteers cut vegetation and pulled blowdowns off the trail. The PATC overseer for the area, John Schell, organized the work teams and gave the safety briefing. A National Park Service ranger welcomed the group and provided tools. Two other PATC overseers participated.

The Potomac Heritage Trail between Roosevelt Island and the American Legion Bridge is very popular. Just while the work group was getting organized, two large hiking groups met and started down the trail. The collaboration among the Andersen employees, the PATC, and the National Park Service produced a significant benefit for users of that trail. This event is just one example of many fruitful collaborations the PATC is involved in. The club looks forward to many more in the future.
