Volunteers turn out for Fish Lake

Close to 75 people turned out for a meeting at Fish Lake last week, including many of McKenzie River Ranger District employees. Besides camaraderie, there was plenty of maintenance work as well as restoration or replacement of structures to attend to.

Part of the projects people took on included scraping and painting, fence replacement, and restoration of decayed log ends on the cabins. While that was underway, other work ranged from general cleaning of inside buildings, plumbing repair, Internet connection, and a power system upgrade.

Given the changes impacting the area in recent years, there was also a very active discussion on how to increase the likelihood of the historic structures surviving a wildfire. Whatever conclusion is reached, members of the Friends of Fish Lake agree any actions will result in a multi-pronged approach.
