At their meeting Tuesday evening,the Hamilton County Conservation Board received a progress report in regards to the cabin project at Little Wall Lake south of Jewell. Director Brian Lammers said the project is moving right along. Rafters to the cabin will be installed on Friday of this week with the log walls to be completed this week. The work on the new cabin facility began last month with an eventual completion sometime later this summer or early this fall.Crews have been busy installing and electric lines plus the laying on concrete on the property.
In another matter,Lammers informed the conservation board of plans to construct another new cabin facility at Briggs Woods Park. The cabin would be located next to the Legacy Cabin that opened last fall. This cabin would include two bedrooms that would sleep upwards to six to eight people, bathoom, and a kitchen. The structure would measure 20 by 20 feet. Construction on this new cabin would begin in the fall.
The Hamilton County Conservation Board submitted a purchase agreement to the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation for a piece of land located three miles north of Webster City on 190th Street.The board will find out more about whether or not the agreement will be approved in the next few weeks.
One other project was discussed by the board Tuesday night. A new shower house for Little Wall Lake is being proposed.

The first meeting will be a budget planning meeting on July 16th and the regular monthly meeting is set for July 30th. Both meetings will be held at the Hamilton County Conservation Building at Briggs Woods Park at 10 in the morning.
