McCoy Fort Gets the AmeriCorps Treatment

By Rodney, Preserve WV AmeriCorps member

Yesterday, members from the Preserve WV and Appalachian Forest Heritage Area AmeriCorps programs volunteered for a work day at McCoy Fort in Williamsburg, WV.  The logs from  McCoy Fort were dismantled last year in preparation for a summer archaeological dig.  Earlier this winter, the tarp protecting the logs blew off, exposing the logs.

Rodney Bohner, PAWV’s Preserve WV AmeriCorps, organized a few AmeriCorps members. With oversight provided by Lynn Stasick  and Pete and Carolyn Stephens, the volunteers covered the logs with a large tarp.  It was a sunny day with strong winds, which made it difficult to secure the 30′ x 40′ tarp.  However, it was a successful day, and the members were able to ensure this precious resource is protected from the elements until the fort can be reassembled.
