On October 1, 2022, approximately 20 volunteers gathered at the Garrison Dam Recreational Airpark in Riverdale, ND, to give the airport a fresh look. The group was made up of North Dakota Aeronautics Commission staff, aviation enthusiasts, members from the Mandan EAA chapter, and the Recreational Aviation Foundation.
The project consisted of multiple improvements to the site:
New cones were installed throughout the airport on the runway, apron, and segmented circle.
Excessive tire tie-downs on the apron were removed.
Multiple new information signs were installed.
Excess trees and shrubs were removed from the perimeter to enhance safety and airport appeal.
Thank-you to all of the volunteers who helped make the event a success!
