Volunteer Backcountry Stewardship Week – West Walker River Drainage

July 14 - July 17

Join Friends of the Inyo and the Bridgeport Ranger District of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest for a spectacular three days of stewardship the Hoover Wilderness. We’ll be working to monitor weed species in the West Walker River drainage, and taking care of any trail issues we come across. And we’ll also save plenty of time for hiking, sharing stories, and enjoying a beautiful place.

Trip dates are July 14-17, 2022.
Space is limited—RSVP now to stewardship@friendsoftheinyo.org to ask questions or hold your spot!

This is a backpacking trip, so attendees must be able to carry their own packs and gear 6 miles into the backcountry to set up camp. On work days, folks must be able to hike all day while monitoring for weeds (training will be provided on how to do so). Participants are responsible for all their own gear and food. Friends of the Inyo provides itinerary, expertise, and a one of a kind experience!

Significant resources go into these backcountry stewardship offerings, and as such, we hope you will consider becoming a member of Friends of the Inyo to support our programs like these. You can join or renew here today!

Please read about past projects on our Volunteer Wilderness Work Week page.

This Volunteer Wilderness Work Week and others are supported by a grant from the National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance’s Wilderness Stewardship Performance Grant.

All events on public lands are subject to approval by their respective land management partners, and are not guaranteed in location, number of participants, or activity until permits are finalized.
