We were vey thankful for a number of the COE volunteers to step up and help us finish the very last of the gatehouse mulching projects.
With all these folks pitching in, the work went fast.
The final tally is 11 gate houses and surrounding areas weeded and mulched. To get an idea of how big the total area covered is, think of half a football field.
While we were working in the Modoc campground, I was able to get a picture of the Journey in the adjacent campground where all the volunteers stay (Volunteer Village Campground).
Thankfully, we have a great time after work with weekly get togethers and pot luck suppers.
After all, we do have to keep our energy levels up for the next job! ;c)
An answer to the questions about how does the Corps follow up on boundary line violations: the rangers take them very seriously, first verifying what we’ve discovered, then notifying the violator of the issue, often meeting with them in person to discuss what corrective actions are necessary. A time frame is set to have the violation corrected and most often the issue is quickly resolved. There have been cases, however that have resulted in fines, lawsuits and in at least one case I was told about, the person had to purchase from the Corps a small piece of property after constructing his house four feet over the boundary line. Big Oops! ;c)
The rangers do keep on top of this and protect this beautiful area to keep its pristine beauty for all of us to enjoy.
