So if the State cannot fund the Duck Hole project how much money do "WE" need to raise to put a dent in this project?

I'm thinking we would need a pretty good sum, but not as much as the D.E.C. estimated. A lot of the cost is the coffer dam, and getting material on site, as well as removing and re-filling the boulder cribs. We need volunteers who know how to hand hew logs, and we need someone who knows rigging to build a crane on site, much like they did to load ships hundreds of years ago. We need the DEC to give this project there blessing. We need a lot, but it is doable.
We need to solve the problems one at a time, and then take everything we've accumulated, and bring it to the table for the DEC. If we bring funds, skilled craftsman, knowledgeable people to engineer a crane, that makes the DEC's job much easier, and helps them to find it hard to say no...
