Stage 1 Fire Restrictions – Pike and San Isabel National Forests
FOMP would like to remind you of several upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.
April 16 – Saturday 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM – FOMP will be planting 350 seedlings in the Preserve! And that means we need volunteers! We should be done by noon, or perhaps a little earlier if we have a good turnout. Folks should bring gloves and water and a daypack or small backpack, but should not need lunch. We will have trees, shelters, stakes and tools staged at the trailhead. Meet at the Nursery/Shilling Parking lot at 9:00 AM. Dianne Strohm is the coordinator for this project ( dstrohm AT kellin.net but she doesn’t carry a newfangled phone so be sure to reach out ahead of time if you need to get more information)
Annual Hot Shots and Helitac Crew Dinner
April 28 – Thursday 5:30PM – every year FOMP hosts a pot luck dinner for the Hot Shot and Helitac crew based in the Preserve. We will have dinner ready for the crews at 5:30pm. Drop in and meet the great team that will be based right here in the Preserve this summer as they wind down their training and get ready to go out on the firelines. FOMP runs this as a potluck style operation so please bring some food this is a hungry bunch and we could always use more!
* Casseroles, crock pot dishes,etc.. for the main course.
* Salads, breads,fruit and desserts to accompany the meal.
The FOMP coordinator for the event is Diane Bandle and she can be reached at dmbandle AT hotmail.com. Please let Diane know what you might be able to provide or bring to the work center that day between five and five thirty. If you can not attend but would like to cook some food please let Diane know and she can accomodaye a drop off at her house prior to the event.
