The Eldorado National Forest is searching for a few dedicated volunteers who enjoy working and sharing their passion for the preservation of wildlands.
Come to an informational meeting to learn more about wilderness volunteer opportunities, what is required to become a volunteer and how your help is crucial to meeting the Chief’s 10 year Wilderness Stewardship Challenge.
The meeting will be held on Thursday, April 14, 7 p.m., in the Large Conference Room at the Eldorado National Forest Supervisor’s Office, 100 Forni Road, Placerville (behind Midas Muffler).
There also will be a meeting at the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit, Forest Supervisor’s Office, 35 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe. (Time and date to be scheduled, call 530-543-2621 for update.)
Volunteers work closely with Forest Service wilderness staff and can choose from a variety of project based resource management activities: trail maintenance, campsite restoration and monitoring, visitor education, interpretive programming and wilderness permit office support. Field projects involve hiking in moderate to difficult terrain and require a good level of physical fitness. Volunteers are asked to make a minimum commitment of six days per season.
