Do you have 45 seconds to spend? If so, watch this video of one of the final trees coming down at NorCal Adventure Area.
Why more trees? This is a small select cut that is removing all of the trees that are damaged and diseased. It also will remove the few trees that are remaining that are in the path of the road/utility work that is ready to be started. Once these trees are gone, the final rocking of the culverts will happen and we will be able to close out our timber harvest plan. It really was a matter of not being able to see the trees for the forest and now that the road is rough graded, it is much easier to see the final trees that must be cut.
We still have a ton of shade available and most of the Adirondack buildings that we will be producing this winter will be placed in the shade as well. The vision of the big activity field, playground, lake and more is really coming to life. Soon we will be able to break up the concrete pads left from our removal of the big bunkhouses as well as the storage building that remains in the center of camp.
The changes are moving forward quickly and like an amazing sculpture, each layer of excess removed allows the vision to come to life. Can you see it in your mind’s eye? Reality is not far behind.
What’s next? National Youth Leadership Training has its final weekend for the year this Friday. Join us Friday for a post on this amazing program and how our facility is helping to train the leaders of tomorrow.
