20 Lakes Basin Restoration: Backcountry Volunteer Work-Week: FULL

August 26, 2023 - August 29, 2023


Come join Friends of the Inyo and the USFS for a week of immersive restoration work in the Backcountry of the Hoover Wilderness.

Where: 20 Lakes Basin, Mono Ranger District, Inyo NF

When: Changed to Saturday August 26- Tuesday August 29 (Dates are subject to change depending on conditions)

What: Restoring system trails and rehabilitating riparian habitat from user damage. 

Why: This is critical habitat for the Yosemite Toad among other sensitive species. Many social trails and illegal campsites in the area threaten the health of this ecosystem. 

How: We will backpack in approximately four miles to basecamp and spend our days performing trail maintenance, campsite restoration, and social trail eradication. 

NOTE: Please be aware that this will be four days of physical work and hiking in a rugged, high elevation environment. Participants will be in charge of carrying their own gear, food, bear canister, and provisions. Backpacking experience is preferred. 

Registration is very limited, so please only sign up if you are certain you can make the commitment.

Registration is FULL

Thanks to our partners and sponsors:
