DVFF Conservation Opportunities
Below are the current opportunities for DVFF members to volunteer and participate in conservation events and programs. Where possible, the listed opportunity will contain a link to more detailed information. If you have a volunteer opportunity that you'd like the club to know about, please contact the Conservation Chair. (NOTE: Conservation is also one of the categories needed to achieve DVFF's Golden Trout Award.)
Walnut Creek Clean Up: This annual event is scheduled for a Saturday morning in early May at Civic Park. We endeavor to remove debris and invasive plants from the section of Walnut Creek near the park, and have fun at the same time. Bring your family (but not small children), gloves, and be prepared to get a little muddy. Breakfast provided by sponsors. Watch for sign-up sheet at club meetings.
Friends of the Inyo Wilderness Stewardship Vacations: Friends of the Inyo, a group DVFF sponsors, has arranged three Wilderness Stewardship Vacations into the Eastern Sierra this summer. You walk in (mules carry the heavy stuff), help repair trails and campsites during the day, and have mornings and evenings to flick flies into nearby streams and lakes, returning by foot a few gratifying days later. Per person costs (with meals and cooking provided) are only $200-500. See FOI website for dates, locations, and details.
If you need additional information about any of these outings, contact the conservation chair.
