ASC Shoreline Restoration Project

On 6 June, 2012, Amber Bethe, from Fish and Game, brought out about 30 volunteers, and along with Bruce Lee, Jim Aumann, TL Stanbro and Bruce Lalonde, the Shoreline Restoration was completed. The following pictures were taken. I hope the pictures give you an idea of the great amount of planning, money, and manual labor that was required to reach the final result...The new and improved ASC SHORELINE.

There is a lot of soil that will be re-seed to have grass in front of the sauna and down to the shoreline. Unfortunately, rain was coming down during the restoration and overnight, so the ground is very wet. It is roped off. Please be sure to avoid that area at all times. Once the grass starts growing, it will be beautiful. Thanks to everyone that helped to accomplish the grand project.
