SPECIAL PROJECTS

 

WARREN/OSTER MEMORIAL KIOSK

  • Several years in the making, the final product proves to be an inspiring work of art and craftsmanship. The Kiosk, named in memory of two lovers of Wildersness - Jake Oster and Rick Warren - is located outside the US Forest Service Office in Silverthorne. The front of the kiosk contains US Forest Service maps and information. Around behind is a tranquil picnic area, with table and plaques commemorating the lives of Rick and Jake.

BEAU SCHUETTE MEMORIAL  BOARDWALK

  • Beau Schuette loved the Wilderness but died too soon, at 35, of an undiagnosed heart condition. His family and friends have sponsored a much-valued boardwalk across a marshy area on the popular Mesa Cortina trail in honor of Beau.
