Buttermilk Falls WWT 2010



Hello Readers in Cyber-space:  This weeks Waterway Work Trip Leader Kevin Large coming to you.  We had a great week, in all aspects; weather, interns, and volunteers.  Out at the buttermilk falls site the other interns and I worked along side 9 great volunteers to remove an old log ladder stair case, install a new 16-foot section of bog bridging, installing a stone staircase and stepping stones through wet areas in the portage trail as well as brushing in the old trail and resigning the new trial.  Our crew dined on a variety of foods from tortellini on Friday night to blueberry chocolate chip pancakes on Sunday morning.  Many of us paddled to the work site from our camp along the Raquette River on Saturday and on Sunday after the work was done we enjoyed an afternoon paddle along the Inlet of Long Lake.  The weekend could not have been better!

Remember to get out there and keep your paddle wet,

  1. Well as one of the volunteers on the weekend I can truly state the experience was wonderful. I was very impressed by the skill and dedication, and also the kind spirit, of not only the interns but of the other volunteers as well.

    It was truly worth making the trip from Canada and I only wish I was able to fit in another weekend this summer. This will certainly be on my list for next year!!!!
