The lilacs are done, but my volunteer lupines are reaching their peak …
Last week, Asch and I put up the first four brand new signs made by WMHCTA’s brand new CNC router under the steady hand of volunteer Joel Malstrom (who ain’t brand new at all).
This is LAST CALL to join a crew of folks who will take out about 60 logs on the Goat Creek Trail out of Wallowa. The 4-day project starts this Thursday, June 24 through Sunday, June 27: Lantz Hughes is looking for a couple more people to join this stock-supported trip, which means that animals will carry your tools and some of your gear. You will backpack in 5 miles, set up a base camp near the historic Bear Creek Guard Station cabin, and work your way up to Goat Creek.
You’ll also get to put up brand new signs at the Goat Creek/Bear Creek intersection.
On to JULY:
Tuesday, July 6 and Thursday, July 8: We’re looking for a few folks to work with some high school students clearing some brush on the Falls Creek Trail (near the Hurricane Creek trailhead). Asch Humphrey, who is much more fun than me, will be leading these two one-day projects. Join us for one or both! We’ll supply the loppers. This area has one of the best views for the least work in the Wallowa Mountains!
Sign up by sending me an email, or go to www.wmhcta.org to sign up online.
