FAIRBORN — Members of the Greene County Parks & Trails’ maintenance team recently visited Fairborn Primary School first-graders to demonstrate some of the tools of their trade.

GCP&T Operations Manager Rick Inman and GCP&T Maintenance Supervisor Dave Dudgeon shared safety messages with the children and allowed them to try out some of the equipment needed to maintain the agency’s nearly 3,000 acres of parkland and 62 miles of paved trails.
