Volunteers Needed on Cow Mountain

The Bureau of Land Management Ukiah Field Office is inviting volunteers to come help repair fire-damaged recreation facilities and trails in the South Cow Mountain OHV Management Area on Saturday and Sunday, June 1-2, from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. each day.

The OHV area has been closed since July 2018, being heavily damaged by the Mendocino Complex fires. Helping hands are needed to install trail markers, signage, culverts and erosion control features; construct barriers; repair and maintain trails and complete trail surveys. The work will require hiking, digging, hauling and moving rocks and heavy material. The BLM will provide all necessary tools and materials.

Volunteers should check-in at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, June 1st and 2nd, at the Westside Staging Area on South Cow Mountain. It is recommended that participants wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, sturdy footwear and bring sunscreen and gloves. Volunteers should also bring a lunch and plenty of water. All volunteers are welcome, whether they can help both days, just one day or only part of the day.

Tent camping will be available for volunteers at the Red Mountain Campground. Please bring a tent, camping equipment and enough food for both days, if volunteers plan to stay overnight.
