Piedmont Scouts Help Repair Historic Native American Structures

Scouts from Troop 4 learned how to repair bark walls, finished up with an overnight camp-out.

From a Troop 4 press release:

On Saturday, Nov. 10, five Boy Scouts from Troop 4 joined a work party at the Point Reyes National Shoreline Park to repair and maintain existing historic structures at the Kule Loklo Coastal Miwok Village. The Scouts dismantled a grainery structure, repaired it ... then reassembled the bark walls.

They were joined by several adult workers who explained the history and culture of the Coastal Miwok people. After helping to clean up the native plant garden, a National Park Service Ranger, Laura, took the boys into the Ceremonial Round House and dazzled them with Native American stories about Coyote.

After a hard day of work, the Scouts retired to an overnight camp-out in nearby Olema.
