National Public Lands Day at Soldier Meadows!
2023 National Public Lands Day! Come out and have a blast with a weekend full of projects, fun, and great food (including a Dutch Oven cook-off)! There will be multiple projects for all skill levels, camping in a beautiful location, and a great community of people. You don't want to miss this one, RSVP and save your spot today! Some of this year's projects will include:
1 - Fence removal to improve wildlife habitat throughout Soldier Meadows!
2 - Cabin/campground cleanup, trash removal, and beautification
And more to come! We are still in the planning phase and will have projects for every level! Check back for updates closer to the event!
As always, this project is free! We will be providing breakfast with coffee Saturday and Sunday as well as a delicious dinner on Saturday night. For this project, a 4-wheel drive vehicle is not required to reach the campsites (as long as it's not too wet), but, higher clearance and good tires are recommended. We have camping gear available for those who need it. We will have limited space in Friends trucks to transport volunteers and carpooling is an option as well.
