The Sierra Club Illinois’ Three Rivers Project is calling for volunteers for the Fall 2021 Pere Marquette Preservation Project in Grafton.
The project, which will take place from Oct. 15 to 17, has been restoring historically significant cabins in the Park’s Upper group camps since 2012. Local carpenters, roofers, and interested volunteers are invited to register for the event by Oct. 1.
Over the years, volunteers have restored enough structures to keep Camp Ouatoga open to the public. This year, the Three Rivers Project will be restoring Unit Lodge No. 3 of Camp Ouatoga in their ongoing efforts to restore and protect public lands like the Pere Marquette Park Upper Group Camps.
Event organizer and Sierra Club Illinois’ Three Rivers Project co-coordinator Virginia Woulfe-Beile said the project “is a great way to get involved in the local community while also lending a hand to the Sierra Club’s mission to explore, enjoy, and protect the planet.”
