In continuation from the posts of the past couple days regarding the vacant houses and land within Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, I would like to now discuss your thoughts on the implantation of a work stay program. As you have seen through my photographs these historic buildings are in a state of decay. I am sure there are programs in effect through the park service, and other interested organizations to keep up repairs but for this discussion let’s set those aside.

Imagine these buildings with rotating groups of students, visitors, artists, and others who are allowed to stay for a period of time. In exchange they provide some contribution to the park, be it in the form of work for upkeep or installation of artwork into these beautiful rustic structures.
