FSPW Events evolving as we move through the fire season.

Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness events over the next few weeks are going to be heavily dependent on the fire situation.

We have two education classes led by Brian Baxter upcoming that are still open for signups and will be held in places that are safe to do so. Map and Compass is slated for Friday, September 4 and Wetland Wanderings is slated for Friday, September 18. These are both great classes and you can sign up at https://www.scotchmanpeaks.org/event/field-day-fridays/

The location of these events may change as time approaches, but we will keep you posted of developments.

Our hike program beyond September 7 is “on hold,” which means that hikes after that date will be held as scheduled only if the closure order is lifted.

The same is true of our work weekends on Scotchman Peak (September 11 and 12) and Morris Creek (September 25 and 26). Only if the closure order is lifted, these work days will be completed.

All of these events are listed under the link posted below, with each event linked to a signup form. Feel free to sign up, for we really hope to get back in the woods this year, but please note that all are dependent on what our agency partners deem safe and necessary during the continuing fire season.

Thanks for staying in touch. We will update all who sign up for any of these events of location changes, times, or cancellations as soon as we know.

Spread the love
