The B-CC IWLA Chapter, as a provider of potable water (wells), an agricultural endeavor (farming, forestry, wildlife management), and a concerned conservator of the areas around our ranges (lead mitigation), embarked on a water quality testing program over ten years ago. Results to date consistently indicate that most water entering the property via Horsepen Branch and smaller streams leaves the property cleaner and healthier than when it first entered.
The historic cabin located on the edge of the small pond along the driveway from the chapter entrance to the chapterhouse itself was originally built in the 19th century. Tireless chapter volunteers and generous members have, over the past several years, renovated the cabin to much of its original condition. Many of the changes to the cabin that evolved through its several owners have been preserved, capturing a living timeline from its original design up to its current incarnation.
The History & Archaeology Committee formed recently as a direct response to the desire to explore and catalog two of the most recent land purchases in the Northeast Woods. The committee has already sponsored several tours for the members of historic sites on the conservation farm property, educated itself on structured methods to investigate sites like these, and embarked on a document survey to gather as much history as possible about one of the Northeast Woods parcels.
The B-CC IWLA Events Committee works under the Kitchen Committee to provide consistent service & standards in the Chapter Kitchen for events held by other committees. This continuity of kitchen expertise allows other Committee Chairs to plan their events without having to attend to the minutiae of coordinating food service & kitchen cleanup.
