On Friday, May 4 and again on Monday May 7, trucks brought in Sandstone rocks from Colorado and the work began. The stones were put into the hillside for seating. There is a large stone which is in front of the stage (which will be constructed next) for presenters to use. Flagstone covers the first two rows, a pea gravel in the next two rows and then lo mow grass which is only suppose to grow up to 6 inches and will not require maintenance.
A fire pit is in one corner and the amphitheater and fire pit area are both handicap accessible.
On Thursday, June 14, the friends will be adding small plants in the seating area. The project is moving along nicely, according to the Mirror Lake Friends group president, Jan Primus.
In addition to raising over $60,000 primarily through their fire wood sales, they also received a $20,000 Stewardship grant to help fund this project.
