A landscape designer for COS has reached out, she is discussing locations where we could feasibly relocate the bench. Unfortunately the US Forrest Service is taking a hard line approach to this, and thus far are not showing signs of yielding to a permit process (they don't have one). It just doesn't look like it is going to be able to stay put, but COS wants to help us, and favor keeping the tribute rather than destroying it.
You should also know we have a US Senator, and Congressman interested in keeping it right where it is.
We will try to bring their pressure to bear on the Forrest Service.
We aren't giving up.
