Vol­un­teers are needed for lean-to ren­o­va­tion

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

The Catskill Con­ser­va­tions Corps will re­ha­bil­i­tate the Echo Lake lean-to in the Indian Head Wilder­ness from Nov. 9 through Nov. 11.

The New York-New Jersey Trail Con­fer­ence, which is seek­ing vol­un­teers for the project, said vol­un­teers may ac­cess the lean-to via the Meade’s Moun­tain trail head in Shady. The trip is planned mid-week to limit the disruption to cam­pers and hik­ers.

Vol­un­teers will in­stall a new roof, a new privy and stain the lean-to.

Mem­bers of the crew may choose to camp at the lean-to dur­ing the project. Vol­un­teers should wear hik­ing boots, dress ap­pro­pri­ately for out­door con­di­tions, bring work gloves, and pack plenty of wa­ter and a bag lunch. The pub­lic is in­vited to par­tic­i­pate.

For in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Will Soter, as­sis­tant pro­gram co­or­di­na­tor, Catskill Con­ser­va­tion Corps, by email at will@nyn­jtc.org or by phone at (518) 6284243.
