LogJamBee `13

This is FLG’s annual logjambee during which we cut / remove as many jams as possible to make the river a safer place in which to recreate while helping limit bank erosion and improve water quality.  The jams are GPS-ed and ready. We need adults and teens of either gender.  Crews will drive to the jam sites. 

Meet at @ 8:30am at DeWitt’s McGuire Park East Pavilion, just west of the fire station on Main Street (Howe Rd) for the orientation meeting and your assignments.  Return @ 1pm for tall stories and a hearty loggers’ lunch!  Bring your waders / work boots, gloves, long-sleeved shirts, hefty ropes
(no ski ropes) and an adventurous spirit.  The water levels are low and there are no bugs. Sharpened & running chainsaws are a plus, but not mandatory.  For every sawyer in the river, we need 3-5 crew members to remove the limbs & log chunks into the wetland to avoid re-entry into the river during upcoming floods.  Please step up – FLG & the LGR need you!  Hope to see you, your buddies and families there.

Rain or shine.  In case of lightning, Sat., Oct. 5 is our backup date, same time & place.

Bob Bishop is LogJamBee `13 coordinator.
