Bordner Cabin 2021 Stewards:   Adopt-A-Cabin to monitor and spruce up for a month (sweep, pick up litter, pull weeds, clean the Plexiglas with a special solution, deter vandals and graffiti with your presence, share the history and answer questions posed by visitors) Take along a broom, dust pan, hammer and nails.  Receive a special t-shirt to wear when you are at the Cabin:

 April, Pete Silldorff
 July, Ed and Elaine Ludwig

Many of the cabin users are there Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 12-6 with the heaviest usage 12-4.  Adopt-a-cabin volunteers are encouraged to visit during those hours to garner support and stewardship for the cabin.
