Hopkins volunteers and students from the Sabin Schellenberg Center in North Clackamas are milling our own western red cedar logs into siding for the new Outreach Center that is replacing the now removed double wide manufactured house. Volunteers have milled over half of the boards and battens needed for the building project.
Volunteers have met every Thursday from 9am-noon to run the mill. It does not get any more rewarding than milling Hopkins own trees into its own lumber to use as siding. If you are interested in helping to operate the portable sawmill and cut the cedar logs into siding contact Peter Matzka, our forest educator at (503) 884-6202.
