Green Lakes Stewardship Backpack I - September 11, 2015 - 8:00 am - Bend
This will be a 3 night out backpack into the Three Sisters Wilderness to complete a wilderness stewardship project. We will be joined by a wilderness ranger who will give us instructions. Our mission will be to rehab a wilderness lake camping area. You will have to bring your own backpacking gear, work gloves and food. All other tools will be supplied. This will be a fun outing with time for relaxing and socializing. We will also have the opportunity to learn and ask questions. Restoration Plan: Wooden sign installation for camping set back- Installation of restoration signing at closed campsites- Armoring and naturalization of illegal campsites- Installation of no campfire signs-Trash. We will hike in from Green Lakes TH. This trip will require about 5 miles of hiking each way. Elevation gain is approximately 1200 feet. We will camp in the Green Lakes area for the weekend and depart to Green Lakes TH on Monday at 12pm with the goal of getting home by afternoon Monday. Please keep in mind that the work is somewhat strenuous.
Mission Accomplished! All the new signs are up and sites decommissioned and rehabbed. We packed out 20lbs of trash, took down 4 structures, 1 fire ring and cleaned all 28 the designated campsites.
