Cultural History Interpretation - Forest Resource Management
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by South Fork Merced River Trailblazers
PO Box 5008-201
Bring to life the stories, images and artifacts of the Hite's Cove Mining town. Though it burned down many years ago, the building pads, roads and walls, as well as mining equipment give enough form to the landscape to spark curiosity and imagination about a different time and place.
Collaborate with the Sierra National Forest Forest Archaeologist to create a uniue forest visitor experience.
Participants will contribute to the project by writing content for the various interpretive stations along the Hite's Cove Trail, including such sites as
- the secondary rock milling site;
- a Chinese neighborhood;
- the first view of Hite's Cove;
- the bridge and road to Mariposa and Yosemite;
- the town site;
- the lower mine;
- the vegetable and fruit garden; and,
- initial trail markers about flowers, salamanders and geology.
This content would be used to populate a downloadable phone-ap, resulting in a digital interpretation program for this area of the forest; the data can be can be audio files, text, images, video or a combination thereof. Contributors would conduct research, craft the content and submit to the USFS for final editing. Resources will be available, including access to Forest Service Personnel and the Mariposa County Museum.
This is an ongoing project. If this ad is still present, there is work to be done.
