"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Help with Emergency Maintenance at Museum

The project:
Help place buckets throughout California Auto Museum to help protect the collection from rain pouring through the sieve-like roof.

A few minutes here and there as we moved through the museum.

Why bother?
Clearly, volunteers were overwhelmed by the job of protecting this beautiful collection of cars. While there were tarps and towels and buckets throughout, volunteers were busy trying to guide visitors while also occasionally emptying buckets. What they needed was a new roof. What I could offer was a hand.

Worth it?
Yes. But sad that the place is in such disrepair.
