Forest Service seeking Desolation Wilderness volunteers

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif.- The U.S. Forest Service is looking for volunteers who love working outdoors, enjoy talking to people, and are dedicated to preserving one of our nation’s most popular wilderness areas, Desolation Wilderness.

Desolation Wilderness is about 63,960 acres of sub-alpine and alpine forest, granite peaks, and glacially-formed valleys and lakes located west of Lake Tahoe and north of Highway 50 in El Dorado County and jointly managed by the Eldorado National Forest and Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit.

The public is invited to attend either one of two volunteer orientations to learn about the different volunteer opportunities, what is required and how your help is important to the preservation of Desolation Wilderness.

A meeting will be held at 7 p.m. May 4 at the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit Supervisor’s Office on 35 College Drive in South Lake Tahoe. For more information call 530-543-2694.
