Sat/Sun Aug 16 & 17, 2014: Stewardship Project & Optional Campout



Join us on Saturday August 16 as we work to convert barb wire fencing in the Bodie Hills to wildlife friendly "let down" fencing. The project will take place from 9am - 3pm with an option to camp out in the Bodie Hills followed by a hike on Sunday morning Aug 17. This project is a stepping stone that will hopefully lead to the removal of a nearby fence in the Bodie Bowl Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). 
Participants should wear long pants, hiking boots, and sun protection (hat & sunscreen) and bring water and a lunch. We will provide tools, safety glasses and gloves.  Volunteers who work a full day will be rewarded with some cool swag from Patagonia! 

The work site requires some hiking in sagebrush country. Participants should be physically fit and expect to work in full sun exposure. The views (from our worksite) of Mono Lake and the Eastern Sierra are incredible, so bring along a camera.

 

Participants who wish to spend the night should provide their own camping equipment (tent, sleeping bag & pad). Dinner & breakfast will be provided to campers.
