WORK PROJECTS BY LP FOREST ASSOCIATION:

These are the new dates for working vacations that LPFA is putting on.  If you are interested, sign up at LPForest.org.  Look for the events tab and the project you are interested in.

  • April 5-8: Judell Trail (dates may change a bit)
    • Car camping at Santa Barbara Potrero
    • Mike Smith trail leader
    • Work will be fixing the road up to Judell Trail for stock trailers and also making the Judell stock passable down to Heath Camp.
  • April 12-15: Tinta Trail
    • Backpacking trail project along the Tinta Trail
    • Either Bryan Conant or Ari Songer trail leader
    • We'll be backpacking 3 miles to a spike location to work on brushing the Tinta Trail.  We are trying to lineup motorcycle support to act like mules for the project by bringing in tools, food and supplies.
    • Non-wilderness so we'll be using chain saws.
  • May 4-12: Upper Sisquoc Working Vacation (Packers needed)
    • Stock support led by Otis, trail leader Mike Smith, cook Rich Scholl
    • Basecamp at Heath or Cottonwood and work the week along the Sisquoc between Lower Bear and South Fork clearing trees, brush and tread work.
  • June 1-9: Lower Sisquoc Working Vacation (Packers needed)
    • Stock support led by Otis, trail leader Mike Smith, cook TBD (no Rich, $^&#*^)
    • We'll be able to drive in to the Schoolhouse and backpack up from there 5 miles to Lorna Camp.  Work will be restoring tread and clearing brush and trees.  Stock support will most likely be based out of the Schoolhouse coming down from NIRA
