Had a great time today with my Dad, cooking peach cobbler for 250+ 7th Graders at Fredericksburg Middle School and teaching them the ways of the old west cattle drives. Long live the cowboys. #LivingHistory#PeachCobbler
There are plenty of volunteer opportunities at Lewis and Clark National Historical Park and we LOVE our volunteers! Pictured here are some of our Living History Associates, who assist with safe costumed interpretation of early 19th century skills including quill pen writing, hide tanning, rendering, making tallow candles and flint and steel fire starting. With additional training volunteers can also assist with flintlock muzzleloading and firing. This work occurs in the summer from mid June to labor day, the week after Christmas, and for other special events throughout the year. If you are interested in joining the park as a living history volunteer please get in contact with our volunteer program manager at 503-861-4424 or complete an application at www.nps.gov/volunteer. #lewisandclarknhp#lewisandclark#findyourpark#findyourvolunteeropportunitiy#encuentratuparque#fortclatsop#nps#nationalparkservice#livinghistory
Eurasian Eagle Owl feather in silent flight.
To accompany it; some words from its' Giver and from some familiar mythology. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
"He who stands upon the nightfall embraces the darkness and follows the Moon.
A Warrior; protecting Mother Earth by day, and a creature watching over the Forest by night." - Adalwolf Parzer >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
‘What person is it—
unfamiliar to me—
who has strengthened me
for a difficult journey?
I was snowed on with snow
and beaten with rain
and soaked with dew;
I was dead a long time.’

All this talk about preserving the mansion with the new fire suppression system may have you asking, why is this so important?
The piping materials used to construct the current system, have deteriorated due to corrosion which leads to leaks possibly making it ineffective. Another downfall of the current system is the amount of water it would take to put out a fire. If there was a fire in the mansion, this system would saturate the space with water causing major damage to the authentic artifacts, wallpaper, and the house itself. .
Check out this photo from May 4, 1968. Firemen arrived at #TheHermitage during a fire in the attic. Learn more about the special tour at the mansion on your next visit! http://ow.ly/hTFp30hRvit .
Sigh. The Alafia River Rendezvous is starting up and I won’t be attending this year due to unfortunate circumstances. Here’s one of my fave Rendezvous outfits. I just bought a ton of historical patterns so I can busy myself by making new outfits.
