BRFAL Meeting at the Front Porch

Our monthly BRFAL meeting was graciously hosted by Smith Mountain Lake State Park officials Dave Gunnels, Cliff Goodwin and Jet Lawler at what is know as “The Front Porch”.  The Front Porch is in the Visitors Center and is in a small room set up for “down home” presentations on various nature and local history topics. 

 Dave, Cliff and Jet requested that BRFAL members consider being presenters on the Front Porch.  There are other volunteer activities available at the State Park as well including interpretive hikes and pontoon boat ride nature guide.  Our Kathy Scott agreed to be BRFAL volunteer coordinator for the State Park.  If you would like to volunteer, please contact Kathy.

 After a short BRFAL business meeting, Jet took us on a hike of the Turtle Island trail to show us how a trail interpreter conducts a hike in hopes that some of us would volunteer to conduct some hikes at the Park.

 Some pictures from our visit to the Front Porch and hike are shown below.
