Go figure. I think the logging industry might have stumbled on that one, too.

The good news is that after the original St Helen rock fundraiser, we learned a lot more about how we can interact with the DNR in a cooperative effort, and that basically means cash.
What about moving the rocks to Rocks and Valleys? No red tape other than getting permission from Billings Township to remove them. I doubt R&V would have any problem with a donation of rocks.

It just seems like a waste sitting in a overgrown field doing nothing.

I was thinking the same thing, I can't tell if you are serious or joking. I wouldn't put it past the DNR to ticket me for dumping rocks into a rock crawling course. Silly DNR.
