Project Description: 
Support for this project is provided by the Christopher Nowak Memorial Fund The Lean-to Crew will begin work on the rehabilitation of the Mink Hollow Lean-to. We will transport building materails to the site, replace the roof, put in a new floor, stain the entire lean-to and carry out the materials that were replaced.  This work will take place over a number of work trips.  New Volunteers are welcome and no prior experience is necessary.   You do not need to be a member of the Trail Conference to take part in the crew work. Bring work gloves, water, lunch, and friends; we will provide the rest of the tools and training. Beginners are welcome. Heavy rain or winter weather cancels this work trip.
