Shelters Needing Wood Stoves

WILLAMETTE PASS WINTER SHELTERS NEED WOOD STOVES

The Willamette Pass High Cascade Forest Volunteers are searching for used wood stoves that are in good condition.  Of the six winter shelters near Willamette pass two of them, Fuji and Bechtel shelters, need to have their wood stoves replaced.  New stoves meeting EPA pollution standards do not give off enough heat to keep the shelters warm on a winter night.  So, an older wood stove would be optimal.   

An effort is being made to find someone that may have an older stove that they would be willing to donate or sell.  If you have one or, know of someone who does please contact:  wbsp@wbsp.org

The High Cascade Forest Volunteers and the Willamette Backcountry Ski Patrol are accepting contributions for the improvement to the shelters which can include the purchase of a wood stove.  If you want to contribute, a check can be made out to the Willamette Backcountry Ski Patrol (WBSP).  Include a memo line stating donation for shelters.  You will be sent a letter that acknowledges the donation that will include the tax ID information for your tax purposes.  The address for cash donations is:

WBSP
PO Box 1578

Eugene, Or. 97440

Both the High Cascade Forest Volunteers and the Willamette Backcountry Ski Patrol are US Forest Service volunteer groups. The WBSP is also affiliated with the National Ski Patrol.
