  • Landscape Restoration near Dutchman Pass Road

    For National Public Lands Day Friends of Sloan Canyon is partnering with the Bureau of Land Management to perform landscape restoration and remove social trails along Dutchman Pass Road, near the eastern boundary of Sloan Canyon NCA.

    We'll be gathering near the Dutchman Pass trailhead at a parking area just inside the NCA boundaries. From there we'll carpool down Dutchman Pass Road for 2 miles or so to the restoration site. We'll wipe out some old social trails and restore the area to a more natural looking state for a couple hours then head back to the parking area lunch and many high fives.

    Protective gear, tools, and portable restrooms will be provided, as well a boxed lunch and beverage at the end of the morning.

    If you can use a garden rake or shovel you can help with conservation efforts at Sloan Canyon. Come get sweaty with us and help conserve your public lands. See you there!

  • Trail Post Installation

    We're looking for volunteers to assist us as we continue our project re-signing Sloan Canyon's trail system. We're installing large 3-sided posts that replace older and smaller posts and extend into currently unsigned areas. Having clear directional posts in this area is crucial in keeping hikers from wandering off-trail onto the many washes and legacy OHV tracks in the area. With shovels and other digging tools we'll dig holes at pre-determined spots and bury/anchor the posts in place. If you're comfortable hiking a couple miles with a landscaping tool this is the gig for you. We'll bring the posts, tools, protective gear, and water for refills. You bring sturdy closed-toed shoes, long-sleeved clothing, a snack, and a water bottle or two.
