Event Honoring James Wilson

National Public Lands Day Event Honors James Wilson

Inyo National Forest Press Release:

Come join volunteers for a National Public Lands Day event on the Inyo National Forest. National Public Lands Day brings volunteers to improve and restore the lands and facilities that Americans use for recreation, education, exercise and relaxation.

The Inyo National Forest, Eastern Sierra Four Wheel Drive Club, Friends of the Inyo, and the Sierra Club have selected this project to honor the late James Wilson, who was an active steward of the Eastern Sierra and was passionately involved with collaboration efforts to help diverse users find consensus on land management issues.

The Horton Lakes Road and Trailhead Project starts at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 3, and is expected to last until around 1:00 p.m. Those who wish to may stay a little longer to get more work completed on the Horton Lakes Trail. Please meet at the Highway 168/ Buttermilk Road junction and be prepared to carpool. If you have a four wheel drive vehicle and are willing to have extra passengers, this will help prevent congestion on the narrow 4×4 road.

Volunteers will improve sections of the Horton Lakes Road (removing rocks, obstacles, and ruts, improving drainage, and adding directional signs), and perform basic trail maintenance (brushing, rock removal, improve drainage) along the Horton Lakes Trail.

If you plan to attend, please bring comfortable work gloves, wear sturdy boots, bring snacks, water, and sunblock and be ready to get dirty. Necessary tools will be provided.

If you plan on attending, please RSVP so that we can better plan the day’s activities. For more information or to RSVP, contact Casey@friendsoftheinyo.org or call 760-873-6500.
