March 27-29 2009

On Saturday March 28 volunteers from Friends of Nevada Wilderness ,the Nevada Outdoor School and the Friends of Black Rock High Rock participated in a restoration project in the High Rock Lake Wilderness at Fly Canyon.

Twenty-three hard working volunteers worked on five projects including a Soldier Meadows Hot Spring Campsite clean up. Folks also re-seeded the area with native plants and removed about 20 pounds of litter. Volunteers also re-seeded a previously decommissioned route at Chukar Gulch, installed carsonite sign posts to limit redundant routes on the Fly Canyon Road, decommissioned about a ½ mile of illegal trespass in the Wilderness area in and around Fly Canyon, and if that was not enough folks removed 300 pounds of barbed wire from Fly Canyon.

On Saturday night folks were treated to Holly Palmer’s world famous Ranchers Pie complete with a cornbread topping for dinner and a delicious Dutch oven pineapple upside down cake was served up to celebrate Seira Ploriez’s birthday. There is also an unconfirmed report courtesy of the Royal Marines that Volunteer Dick Ross lost his pants sometime during the trip, and the pants have not been heard from or seen since. Please contact Pat Bruce for more information on Mr. Ross's missing garments.
A big Wild Nevada thank you goes out to all those who made this trip a great success, from those who participated on the ground as well as those folks whose generous donations to Friends helped pay the trip expenses and made this restoration project possible.
