On May 26 2019, the Kuehl Cousins were cementing bicycle hoops at Kuehl Rocks near the Greenbrier Creek Little Library on the Raccoon River Valley Trail one mile north of Herndon, Iowa. This was our 2019 project in memory of our Kuehl parents and grandparents. Cyclist CH was riding the trail and stopped to help. He worked with the Cousins, who are 70 to 78 years old, by helping shovel, transporting bags of cement 1/4 mile down the trail, mixing concrete, pouring concrete, leveling the ground. He worked with us for several hours until the project was finished. We presented CH with the Monarch Butterfly coin that Cousin JMKH had placed inside the Little Library several weeks ago.

Greenbrier Creek Little Library. May 10, 2019. This coin was placed in the Little Library at Kuehl Rocks on Greenbrier Creek, one mile north of Herndon, Guthrie County, Iowa on the Raccoon River Valley Trail. It was placed by Kuehl Cousin JMKH to celebrate one year since the establishment of a Monarch butterfly habitat on the east side of the trail directly across from the Little Library. My hope is that a trail traveler will take the coin and pass it along, and all who receive it will record its journey.
