Sept 29 – Oct 1: National Public Lands Day 2017

We worked in the Desert Dace habitat in the hot springs as a continuation of an on-going multi-year project to remove overgrowth that causes flooding and allows the Green Sunfish to threaten and attack the endemic Desert Dace. Other projects included trash clean-up around Soldier Meadows Cabin and some minor repairs.
