Bowerman workday scheduled for September 6, 2014

Please join us on Saturday, September 6th for the next Bowerman Barn workday. At 8:30 am, coffee and pastries will be served. This is a good time to catch up with neighbors. At 8:50 am, the safety briefing will start, and at 9:00 am we will break into work groups.

Based on meetings with Peter Schmidt and Penny Del Bene from the USFS cultural resource office, the group has permission to start replacing the split rail fence at the cemetery with a more historically-appropriate picket fence. The group will start disassembling the old fence, replacing posts, and installing stringers for the future pickets.

Another group will work on lopping some of the blackberries on the old homestead site. This will enable metal detecting to help identify the location of the original house foundation. Bring long-handled loppers if you have some. There is a lopper left from last workday, if you can’t find yours.

The work groups will break at 11:30 and receive an update on recent developments related to the Barn and ranch. Bring a lunch if you wish.
