Historic Landscape Restoration Team

Type: Intermittent individual volunteers
Dates: June to October
Status: Now recruiting

Quick summary: Throughout the park, historic rock walls were built by WPA crews in the 1920s to line roads, trails, and viewpoints. Many of these are now crumbling, as the mortar that held them together is chipped away by roots, moss, and cycles of freezing and thawing. With the help of this summer's Maintenance Volunteer Coordinator, a team of individuals will be trained to stabilize these walls along the Westside Road, to buy time until they can be fully restored by Park Service stone masons.
