Summer of Stewardship 2010: July 31, Duck Pass!


Project Description: A whopping 35 volunteers gave up their Saturday morning on July 31 to join Friends of the Inyo and MLTPA for Event #2of the Mammoth Lakes Summer of Stewardship 2010 Trail Days program! Gorgeous weather greeted our do-gooders at the Duck Pass trailhead and it stayed nice out for a few hours of fire-ring restoration, trail narrowing, and general cleanup on the Duck Pass and Emerald Lake/Sky Meadow trails. Wilderness Catering came through again with a delicious feast right at the trailhead and volunteers were treated to some excellent (and free!) raffle prizes to cap off the day.
