I am just updating this to confirm it is going to be the Oct 22/23rd weekend.

It sounds like we will be decking a couple of bridges and willow staking the banks around them.  If I am understanding correctly we will be between points 77 & 87 on the map.

Let me know if you are going to be able to make it so I can give them some kind of number.

Thanks

It is.

The plan is to have all the work done on the 22nd so just one day.

He said the only tools we need will be big hammers to drive the spikes in for the decking, and planting bars(like tree planters use) to make holes for the willow sticks.

Below are the responses I have received from the volunteer coordinator.

"Hi Dan,

If you have any planting bars or heavy duty hammers, you can bring them for sure. We will be using galvanised spikes to deck the timber bridges. I think if there is enough of us, we should be able to get both bridges decked and some willows planted by the end of the 22nd. I don’t plan on being there on the Sunday."

 "Hi Dan,

Just wanted to touch base with you about the potential project on October 22nd. The location of the work sites will now be on the main GhP4 road system, and we will be working on both of the new timber bridge that cross Lost Knife and 4 Mile creek. The work will involve decking the bridges as well as willow staking the banks. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns. As far as timing goes, we can aim to be at the south Ghost Staging area for 9-930am."

Just got an update that the crews working on the bridges have gotten ahead of plan.  We will just be planting willows so no hammers are needed.

As far as a planters bar, what I have pictured it as is like an ice bar with the pointy end.  I could be completely wrong, but I think its for you to stab a hole in the dirt to insert a willow bough.

Ghost staging area. A mile or so before the lost knife trail head. On the left side of the forestry trunk road.
