Forever Wild

I took a short walk in Riverside Park on Friday. I hadn't walked through the Forever Wild area, which is a bird sanctuary with dirt trails, in a while. It was very nice to see that several downed trees that effectively blocked the trail had been removed. A few trees remained, but they were easy to navigate over or under.

Near the north end of the sanctuary, there was clear evidence of camping - increased litter, trash bags, many small trails, and a guide rope up the hill to the sidewalk. Riverside Park used to have a significant homeless community. While it has been mostly gentrified, apparently the effort hasn't been completely successful.
