This will be followed by a fun-filled evening of networking and a silent auction at the newly remodeled Mountain Village Bar/Restaurant. Friday is an all-day field trip to Galena Summit and Rainbow Creek Project on the SNRA to discuss recent beetle kill, white pine blister rust, planting and thinning treatments. Saturday is a morning field trip to discuss growing a partnership to address keeping sustainable populations of whitebark pine on the landscape in the face of severe wildfire and little seed for planting.
