Bald Hill Broom Bust **More help needed here

Removing broom gives native plants and trees a better opportunity to thrive, improves habitat for animals, reduces the fire fuel load, and improves views. Note: This project requires a 1 mile hike uphill to the project site.
Time: 8:30 am – noon, followed by a hot chili lunch celebration
