As soon as we know the results of the river examination on Thursday by the Washington State Department of Fisheries and Wildlife we will post the results. Approval of our request to make a single vehicle crossing forth and back to transport volunteer workers and equipment from Twin Bridges to the townsite depends on that check. As in previous years, volunteers will hike the mile to the bridges (whose approach is washed out), cross the river on foot, and then have a ride the three remaining miles to Monte Cristo, with rides out to the bridges in late afternoon.
To join us in our work preparing the townsite for the upcoming winters and summer/s of public exclusion we will be taking down and storing interpretive signs, brushing, and doing small maintenance tasks. To save room, please bring your own sack lunch and snacks, water, and appropriate tools and clothing for what you would like to do. If you have questions, call (360) 793-1534 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org before Saturday morning.
We hope to repeat this the two following Saturdays.
