The BBQ Bash will help the tracked chair program that has seen great success since its launch in February, and the organization needs help from the community to continue to improve the forest and offer EcoRover tracked chairs to the mobility impaired at no cost to the State Forest System, state taxpayers or the users of the tracked chairs.
