Help Needed for Log Cabin Restoration

May 22, 1999|ANNA GORMAN

Los Padres National Forest is looking for volunteers to help restore a turn-of-the-century log cabin on Alamo Mountain.

Baker Cabin, which overlooks Piru Creek in the upper Santa Clara River watershed, was built in the early 1900s.

The Forest Service will restore the cabin from June 5 to 12, in celebration of California's sesquicentennial. Volunteers will work under Joe Gallegher of the Manti-LaSal National Forest in Utah, and will learn about log selection, preparation and installation.

Volunteer workers must be capable of hiking four miles to the site, and must have their own backpacking equipment and water filter. Meals will be provided.

"We're looking for people who can hike, lift, haul, tug, tote, scramble and duck," said Steve Horne, a Forest Service archeologist.

For more information, call Horne at 683-1421.
