From tree to wood for Firewood Ministry

Lake of the Ozarks Master Naturalist and photographer Eric Davis has helped contribute wood to the Firewood Ministry, which is currently headquartered at Lake Family Church in Camdenton.

Recently he cut down a large oak in his yard and photographed the process – step-by-step – to display an interesting pictorial of how the wood goes from one resident’s yard to help furnish wood used in home heating for those families and elderly in need.

The Lake Today would like to thank Eric Davis for his continued support and also for sharing and aiding in this unique, thoughtful and highly needed charitable service at Lake of the Ozarks.
