Volunteer Weekends Begin!
We are grateful for the many people who have expressed interest in being a part of the Woolman recovery process from the Jones Fire. The staff and board members have been meeting regularly to assess damages and begin to address the many needs of campus at this time as we forge a new path forward.
We’re ready to host Volunteer Weekends starting November 6th-November 8th. There are many projects to do and the specifics of each weekend will depend on the needs at that time. Some tasks include clearing old fences, splitting and stacking wood, erosion control etc. Volunteers will be expected to work 8 hours over two days each weekend. Chris Benfield, our Maintenance Supervisor and Caretaker, will supervise the activities.
We encourage individuals and families to join us! We are happy to offer you lodging in our A-Frames and use of East Side Bath House and Dining Hall if needed.
Interested? Please choose which weekends you are interested in and send us a message on the Contact Us page.
Due to Covid restraints, we can host up to 12 people each weekend in the A-Frames. All guests must adhere to our Covid rules, including taking your temperature when you arrive on campus and verifying that you have not had symptoms in the past 2 weeks, while maintaining social distancing from other groups. Masks are required while using indoor facilities and while working with others on volunteer projects.
Meals will not be provided, but signups for the kitchen so individuals and families can take turns preparing meals will be available. The walk-in cooler will also be available. The Dining Hall is closed but the picnic tables on the patio are available with social distancing practiced. You are welcome to bring a small propane-fueled barbecue, for use on the dining patio only. The Bath House use is restricted to one family or individual at one time. The campus is open for hiking and relaxing. Buildings, however, are closed (this includes the Office and Meeting House).
We ask volunteers who choose on-campus housing pay $40 per A-frame rental to cover our cleaning costs.
