Last Year, a group of volunteers came to begin work on our future longhouse.
WOW! So much has been accomplished in just one year!
What Has Been Done So Far?
Most of the framework has been coated in epoxy, carved, stained, AND assembled
Framework for the bed is complete
Two cattail mats have been completed and are attached
Cordage of natural material has been tied around the joints of the framework and the ends sealed with pitch
Brand new signs have been installed
Fishing weir was created
Fish drying rack was completed
Spirit poles were started
But we still have so much more to do!
So we are holding our THIRD Volunteer Days at the Museum!
Join us Saturday April 29th to Sunday April 30th on the Nature Trail to lend a hand towards the completion of our longhouse!
The major projects will be:
Working on aspects of the framework
Making cattail mats
Hanging cattail mats previously made by some of our volunteers
Depending on our progress and availability, secondary projects may include:
Creation of artificial gardens
Finishing Spirit Poles
Can’t attend but want to help?
We still need materials and donations!
