Black Canyon and Susie's Ridge A BLM Wild Lands Hike Saturday October 10, 2015,9:00 AM to 3:30 PM
Wild Connections identified a large chunk of BLM Lands with Wilderness Characteristics (LWCs) adjacent to the Grape Creek Wilderness Study Area (WSA), southwest of Cañon City. We will explore this scenic, little-visited area, hiking a six-mile loop with a maximum elevation gain of 1,000 feet. This lower elevation trek is rated moderately strenuous, because it is mostly off trail. Along the way, we will learn about the future of LWCs and how citizens can get involved in the current BLM Resource Management Planning process.
For more information and to register, contact John Stansfield, 303-660-5849 or e-mail email@example.com, by 5:00 PM Friday, October 9. Co-sponsered by Wild Connections, Pikes Peak Group Sierra Club, and Central Colorado Wilderness Coalition.

Farnum Peak Restoration - Great Work Day!
Thanks to the volunteers from Wild Connections, Great Old Broads for Wilderness, Coalition for the Upper South Platte, Mosquito Range Heritage Initiative, and to the Forest Service crew who helped to close an illegal motorized trail in the Farnum roadless area the first weekend in August.
Both ends of the illegal track were closed with large dirt berms, post and cable; the track behind the closure was mechanically ripped, seeded and covered with logs and brush.
