BTF volunteers were busy recently at both campsites near Mt Cooke.
A large group of maintenance volunteers (with Track sections in Perth Hills District) gathered at the Mt Cooke campsite for their annual Field Day.
There were plenty of tasks to keep them busy for the morning – from sanding and varnishing the bunk boards, fixing the gutter and pipe system, reoiling the cladding and replacing the broken whirlybird on the toilet; to removing the obsolete boot cleaning station, repairing the picnic table and fireside benches, and installing new signage.
Meanwhile, a group of Support Volunteers spent two days making some improvements at the Mt Cooke Group campsite. These included filling a gap in the southern gable end with clear sheeting, installing new gutter guard, constructing new box steps towards the lower level and some new benches around the fire ring, and upgrading the water collection system.
We applaud the hard work and dedication of all our volunteers!
