Friends host annual Hope Valley work day

Join the Friends of Hope Valley for its annual work day on May 27.

The Friends of Hope Valley is a grassroots organization formed to protect the scenic, historical and recreational values of Hope Valley and the eastern slopes of Alpine County. Located in Alpine County, Hope Valley is one of the last pristine high altitude valleys left undeveloped in the Sierra Nevada. Friends of Hope Valley was instrumental in seeing that Hope Valley became public land.

Work day projects include watershed habitat improvement task, general clean up, fencing and pick up of old unused barbed wire.

Watershed projects will include planting willows along the denuded riverbanks of the West Fork of the Carson River. Fences that fell during the winter months will be strung back up prevented motorized use in the sensitive wet meadows. Old barbed wire left from days of cattle grazing in the valley will also be cleaned up.

To join the workday meet at Pickett’s Junction (Highway 89 and 88, in Hope Valley) at 9 a.m. A picnic lunch is provided for those that work until 12:30 p.m. Bring work gloves, fencing tools, shovels and/or clippers; wear hat, sunblock and warm cloths.

This is a great way too enjoy the beauty of Hope Valley. For more information:
