The Epsilon Chapter at Emory University recently completed some much-needed trail clean-up on South Fork Conservancy’s Peavine Trail. While it was cloudy, cool, and windy, the brothers gave up three hours on Sunday, February 4th to make some crucial trail improvements. Starting from the Old Briarcliff Road trailhead, the brothers shoveled and spread nearly two truckloads of mulch onto the trail heading toward the Peavine Trail Rain Garden.
