Pole Raising

Today, not everyone was upset that it was overcast, cool and raining. Some of the staff from the Audubon Center at the Francis Beidler Forest found the conditions quite pleasant for their work. They were at the Wannamaker Nature Preserve to set the poles for the shelter that will be used for educational programming. Digging holes for the poles and setting them in concrete would have been been taxing in the sunshine, high temperatures and high humidity.

The Amish barn-raising teams need not fear the South Carolina competition. However, it should be noted that the poles that are leaning in the image have yet to be set. As has been noted previously, the shelter is an important first step towards providing educational programming at Wannamaker. Next, the driveway and parking areas. Would anyone care to volunteer the funds?
