Swett Ranch and Passport in Time

For over a decade the Forest Service has been making restorations at Swett Ranch with the help of volunteers and Passport in Time (PIT). Recent projects have included replacing the roofs of the milking barn and the first blacksmith shop, re-shingling the two-room cabin, repairing the interior walls of the root cellar, re-chinking the one-room cabin, and repairing fence line.

The 2006 PIT project will include re-shingling the roof of the workshop. For more information on volunteering for the Swett Ranch Restoration Project or other volunteer opportunities, go to www.passportintime.com or contact Byron Loosle at bloosle@fs.fed.us or by phone at (435) 781-5156.
