Superintendent Patrick Reed announced that there is still excess wood in the park that is available for public use.  The downed wood is a result of the January 27 ice storm.

Following the ice storm, park staff moved downed tree trunks away from the roads to make the roads passable.  The logs are considered to be excess property, and if left in the park, the wood could become a fire hazard. 

“We offer the logs free of charge to the public – if you can haul it, you can have it,” said Reed.

The logs are stockpiled in closed areas of the park and at Lincoln Volunteer Fire Department.  People interested in collecting the logs and hauling them away must contact the park ranger staff to make arrangements at 270.758.2115.
