Join us on the Lolo National Forest this year as we rebuild and beautify a gem from Forest Service and early fire-fighting history at the Historic Ninemile Remount Depot! PIT volunteers will work with Forest Service preservation professionals installing a wood-shingle roof on the Depot's Fire Engine Bay. The FS establised the Remount Depot in 1930 to train mules and packers to haul supplies to firefighters in the backcountry of the National Forests of the Northern Rockies, and was in regular use this way until 1954. Ninemile was also the first home of the FS Smokejumpers in 1940 and '41! During the course of this project, PIT volunteers will learn the correct application of wood shingles and learn the techniques for grading cedar shakes and shingles. Volunteers will also learn the principles and philosophies of historic preservation. We welcome both the experienced and the novice volunteer - both will come away with new skills, new historical knowledge, and an experience like none other! We hope to see you this summer!
