Wilson Valley Privy Prep

We're building a new privy at Wilson Valley in June, and need your help! On June 5 we'll do the site prep including felling a couple of trees, digging to get a flat surface, and installing the base 4x6s. We will also stage the materials at the corridor; the last mile or so the trailer of lumber will be towed with Brad’s tractor to the corridor (think of it as a free tractor pulling demo like at the county fair!). If we have extra hands, we can start hauling materials to the campsite. It's about a 0.7 mile walk over […]

Wilson Valley Privy Haul and Build

We need your help building a new privy at the Wilson Valley campsite on June 18-19! The privy was pre-built in April and is now packaged into ~150 bundles that are about 15-30 pounds. Volunteers are needed to shoulder this material to the campsite. It's about a 0.7 mile walk over flat terrain (slightly downhill, actually!) to the campsite, so it doesn't get much easier than that! Many hands make lighter work, and we need many hands for this project. A group will also be building the privy while materials are hauled in. Come for one day or both! Those of […]

Logan Brook Lean-to Sill Replacement Prep

The Logan Brook lean-to was built 39 years ago, and while this might be young for a human the sills are showing their age after that many years of being in the weather. On June 25, we're looking for half a dozen volunteers to help dig out the existing sills.We'll also fell a couple of trees and prop them up to dry for the summer. Then we'll come back August 27-28 to replace the rotting sill logs with the new logs. It's slow but rewarding work! It's a 1.3 mile hike with about 950 feet of elevation gain to access […]

Volunteers are needed to shoulder this material to the campsite. It's about a 0.7 mile walk over flat terrain with 170 feet of elevation to the campsite. We are still scheming access (the West Branch of the Piscataquis River driving to be a challenge), so the access route may change.  Many hands make lighter work, and we need many hands for this project.
