SEASIDE — Volunteers are invited to join the North Coast Land Conservancy staff for an indoor stewardship day 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 14, to give the organization’s tool collection some TLC.
The little shed at Circle Creek Conservation Center in Seaside is full of tools the staff and volunteers use all year long, as well as tools leftover from the property’s farming days that haven’t been touched for a decade or more.
Staff could use help sorting and identifying the tools in the shed so they know which ones to keep, which need repair and which aren’t needed at all. Some tools such as hazel hoes, Pulaskis and loppers need to be sharpened and oiled. Others need minor repairs.
Volunteers familiar with farm equipment and power tools are especially welcome to help staff understand what they have and potentially help with minor repairs. Unskilled volunteers can help by sorting, organizing, cleaning and sharpening.
Email Stewardship Director Melissa Reich at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to let her know you’re coming. Circle Creek Conservation Center is located at the end of Rippet Road in Seaside. Look for the Rippet Road sign on the west side of U.S. Highway 101, 0.7 miles north of the junction with U.S. Route 26. Follow the road west and north a short distance, passing a gravel quarry on your left, to where the road ends between two barns.
