Minute Man National Historical Park: Parker’s Revenge Livestock Shelter and Ramp Construction

Throughout this project this week we worked at Minute Man National Historical Park, Battle road, Parker’s Revenge. The park we worked at this week is a very historical park due to the fact that this is the park where the revolutionary war happened for freedom.   Also this park was the place where the two riders with candles on their horses road out to tell the people living in the area that the British were coming by land or sea. The Branching Out team’s project helps the park to preserve the historical battlefield where the revolutionary war was fought; we flagged where the new paths are going to be on the battle road in Parker’s Revenge. The outcome is that we traced where the path are going to go. Also we were building signs to keep people away from the livestock, we built a new shelter for where the goats are going to live and we built the new paths for the battle road. Throughout this project we used new tools like the hand drill and different drills on the drill, also a new tool we used was the saber saw to saw away excess wood. And there were also many technical experts like Lars, Finola, and Margie that helped us out a ton by teaching us how to use the tools and build the projects. Branching Out Intern Diego Rojas also helped as an assistant technical expert on this project.  This project was fun and exciting to the whole team.
