Because of our computerized location system, and reference markers along the trail, stone markers are not required. They are allowed, but must meet certain specifications. All stone monuments must be of native stone, consistent with the geology of the site. Ramsey Creek can provide an appropriate stone on request. Stones brought from the outside must be approved prior to placement.
In general, stones should be flat to the ground Carvings/artwork other than names and dates must be approved by the Ramsey Creek Staff.
Families may not gather rocks from other areas of the preserve without the permission of the Staff. Families may not build stone piles. In some cases, to create a more natural look, more than one stone can be used to create a monument, but such a marker must be pre-approved
