Rocky Slaymaker, a professionally trained dry stone conservancy mason will again be the lead teacher. The dry stone fence renovation workshop is to be held at the southeast corner of K99 Hwy and Skyline Road (just south of Alma). The workshop will give Kansans the opportunity to learn how their forefathers built these sturdy fences. The historic stone fences, which were authorized by the Kansas legislature in 1867, are highlights of the Kansas Native Stone Scenic Byway, sponsor of this hands-on workshop. Participants will learn the nine essential elements for successful stone fence building and repair. Participants have a tuition of $100 for their first class, and $10 per day for alumni. Applications and More information available from Wabaunsee County Economic Development.
