Description

Welcome back, everyone! We are so excited that you are able to join us for Phase II of the Salmon la Sac Picnic Shelter restoration project (SLS 2 – Kiosk Boogaloo).

From Sept 28-Oct 2, we'll reconvene with David Rodgers to refresh our working knowledge of 1930s-era notching and joining techniques, finish the back half of the kiosk rafters, learn how to shingle a roof, and install the final structure on site! We'll also have a brief introduction to stonework, as we build the kiosk footings from locally sourced river rock (with some help from the Greenway trail crew).

Register soon, and block off your calendars!

What to Bring

Because this is a week-long workshop and volunteer effort, the recommend packlist is more complex than usual. The Salmon La Sac Campground provides vault toilets, drinking water and pumped water, trash collection, and fire rings. For volunteers planning to camp at Salmon La Sac, we recommend:

  • Tent or alternative sleeping arrangements, such as RV or Hammock
  • Sleeping bag (and pad)
  • Camp cookware and supplies
  • Clothing appropriate for a variety of weather conditions, including rain, chill, and heat
  • Flashlight or headlamp
  • First aid supplies

For volunteers commuting to the site, our standard packlist still applies:

  • Close-toed shoes
  • Long pants
  • Water
  • Lunch and snacks

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the lengthy duration of this event, we require volunteers to be vaccinated in order to participate.
