For those of you wondering about the giant piles of gravel in the campsite, they are for road maintenance and improvements. Soon the road through the campsite along the river will be gravelled to eliminate the rough patches and potholes that turn into small lakes during rainstorms. The main road to the tubs was gravelled 2 years ago and is still in good condition. Thanks to Lizzie Bay for the gravel donation! Guess how much that gravel weighs and you get a free dreamcatcher! Hint. It weighs more than a 2000 square foot house.
Thanks again Lizzie Bay!
Another planned improvement at the tubs this year is a brand new underground plumbing system, thus the giant pile of 2 inch hose. This will ensure adequate water flow to the tubs. We just replaced all the outhouses and are planting thousands of Indigenous plants all around the campsite so please don’t collect firewood, you will be stepping on and harming baby medicine and food plants and harming the forest. The forest at Tsek needs every tiny bit of dead wood to fertilize and revitalize the soil.
As you may already have guessed, Tsek relies on donations. If you work for a firm that makes something that may be needed at Tsek, please come talk to us. There are too many planned improvements to list here in this blog, but to “get-er-done”, we will need donations of supplies, especially lumber, hardware, and plumbing parts.
