NO CAMPFIRES ALLOWED!
THE PLACE: In the Santa Fe National Forest, southeast of Cuba. The Rio de las Vacas starts at the upper reaches of the Jemez River watershed in the San Pedro Park Wilderness east of Cuba. We will camp at Clear Creek Group Site on Hwy 126. It is about 6 miles north and west of our planned campsite, toward Cuba. The drive is about 2.25 hours from Albuquerque.
THE PROJECT: This is a family- and kid-friendly event led by Bill Zeedyk. Mainly we will plant willows and sedges, but building rock structures and repairing exclosure fencing as needed are also possibilities. We will be working farther from camp this year, so participants will walk or most likely carpool to task sites.
EQUIPMENT: Wear sturdy boots/shoes. Bring gloves, hats, sunscreen, and water and appropriate gear for camping. Waterproof boots will also be useful...and plan for wet weather. Please supply your own plates, cups, water, and eating utensils for meals.
TOOLS: If convenient, please bring 5-gallon buckets, pruners and loppers, orchard spades, digging spikes, and fencing tools.
FOOD: Breakfast burritos, coffee, and tea water will be provided on Saturday morning. Snacks, drink mixes, and water for personal bottle refills will be available during the day. Saturday evening will be our traditional barbecue potluck meal, and we'll be grilling bison and veggie burgers. Please bring a dish to share with the group...appetizer, salad, vegetable, dessert. Also, please bring your own food for Friday evening, Saturday bag lunch, and Sunday breakfast (though potluck leftovers are often sufficient to feed us all on Sunday).
Additional information and directions will be supplied after registration. There will be vault toilets at the campsite
