Climate & Forest Ecology Edu HikeSunday, Sept 25 at 9:00 AMNorth Fork Trail at Reynolds Park
Join Wild Connections and Karl Ford, environmental scientist, author, and former WC board member, for an upcoming climate and fire ecology education hike. It will be a leisurely walk of about 6 miles round-trip, but we will stop to take measurements of temperature and humidity at ground level in various locations to identify "cold air pools," locations that will remain cooler and wetter in the future.

Lee Patton, Claude Neuman and John Sztukowski went to the N. Tarryall Creek project to check for revegetation or tresspass by motorized users. John said " It looked great at Selkirk and the closure just above the campground. However due to heavy rains the night before, we could not ... make it up to the ridge and above to monitor the 2018 work due to storms moving in on our trip.
District Ranger Josh Voorhis said that the S Park Ranger District is seeing just a little bit of trespass higher up at top of the ridge, coming over from the White River [Forrest] side. It is not much, but [he] views it as sort of a warning flag. They plan to work with the Dillon Ranger District next year on fortifying closures on the White River side."
Keep It Wild Partners Campaign
The environment's needs are growing and Wild Connections needs to grow to meet them. Wild Connections must have additional paid staff to continue to be a proactive force for conservation.
Your single or recurring extraordinary gift will go toward the goal of $60,000 to hire future staff. We're off to a strong start for this campaign with nearly 50% donated or pledged!
