Sounds like they need some people to watch this area. Counting on a
barbed-wire fence doesn't seem secure-in-this point. Not knowing the
physical situation-in-the site, it's easy for me to armchair
quarterback. Does anyone know if there is 24-hour monitoring of the site?

On a related note, I just recently discovered an organization in the
Angeles and San Bernardino National Forests (Southern California) called
the "Fisheries Resource Volunteer Corps." ( Anyone
can become a member. You get a Forest Service uniform and patrol streams
and lakes. It's a good deal.
