The Avatar Grunt-History in the Making
Take the time over the next few days to visit the trails at the AVATAR GROVE.
The AVATAR GRUNT is now in the history books. This past weekend 32 Men and Young Men gathered in Renfrew to the tromp and slip through the mud to clear trail, move rock, carry timber, chainsaw steps, build platforms, boardwalks and stairs, re-locate fallen trees, drive re-bar, carve stairs, tell stories around the fire and build the Upper and Lower Trails at AVATAR GROVE so that our visitors can make the journey safely.
Many thanks and gratitude go to:
- Tim Cash and the Soule Creek Lodge who prepared, delivered and served a grand feast of lasagna, caesar salad, garlic toast, sweets and drinks for all the Men on Saturday eve;
- Bud and Tedi at the Port Renfrew Marina who hosted the Men and our accompanying equipment and created the space for our gathering;
- Pacheedaht Nation who supplied the timber and the manpower to rip it into boards with an Alaskan Mill;
- Jessica at the Province of B.C., Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations who offered up $3,000.00 to help pay for the timber;
- SLEGG LUMBER who donated about $400.00 worth of various hardware.
