Colorado College Volunteers Refinishing Spruce House 2016 Colorado College Volunteers Refinishing Spruce House 2016 Mark Jacobi

Orient Land Trust had the contributions of twenty-two Colorado College volunteers from August 24 to August 28. The students worked in two groups. One group put a new coat of wood stain/preservative on the Spruce Lodge. The second group worked at the ranch building fence. This annual help has been beneficial for us and we hope the students enjoy their time here as much as we enjoy having them here. In addition to the work they did, they got to tour the hydroelectric generator and learn about the inter-related aspects of the OLT systems. The group camped at the Orient Mine and with some afternoon rains had the opportunity to have campfires at their camp site. Many thanks to Colorado College for this opportunity and a big Thank You to the volunteers!
