Upcoming Events

FOMP would like to remind you of several upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.

April 10 – This Saturday – Our second Eagle Scout project will be this Saturday. Zach Anderson will lead this, which includes planting 200 seedlings and releasing as many existing seedlings as time allows. Estimated project time is from 9:00 AM to 3:00PM.

If you would like to participate, please meet us at 9:00 at the Red Rocks Ranch parking lot (intersection of Red Rocks
and Mount Herman Roads).  We plan to shuttle folks just over a mile up the Mt Herman Road, from where we will hike east
into the project area. This spot on the Mt Herman Road will be marked with orange cones, in case you join in late.
Please see attached maps at the end of the message for location details.

Bring gloves and water, and lunch if needed.  Tools will be supplied.

If you want to join in but arrive late, please contact Jon Nordby (640-1347) or Diane Strohm (232-7724), and we’ll
provide directions as to our specific whereabouts.

April 13 – Tuesday 7:00PM – Quarterly Board of Directors Meeting. This will be FOMP’s first quarterly BOD meeting after our recent elections and our change to a quarterly format. BOD Meetings are held in the Fire Center Classroom. For those of you unfamiliar with the classroom building make your first left into the Fire Center after Mt. Herman Rd. turns to dirt, follow the road all the way into the administrative area and the classroom building is the first building on your right.
