A very small army of volunteers attacked the gigantic pile of bark with shovels and wheelbarrows at the Palo Cedro Park workday on Saturday, August 1, 2015.  Despite their limited numbers, the determined workers had almost completely covered the area around the swings by 9:00 a.m. While they were working, the Northern Flights Disc Golf Association was holding a tournament on the disc golf course they had constructed at the Palo Cedro Park, and after it was over a large contingent of competitors came over and relieved the tiring volunteers. Park Director Andy Main reported that they hauled over 100 loads of bark and completely covered the second play area which houses the slides and climbing structures.

Volunteers laid down landscaping cloth on top of the gravel under the playground apparatus to prevent weed growth and to keep the gravel from mixing with the bark.
