Longs Peak SAF
Field trip

Hello everyone,

I am really excited to announce that the Longs Peak chapter has planned a field trip to the Pawnee Buttes area at the beginning of next month.  Come join us as we explore the worlds of range management, forest management within a limber pine stand, and discuss oil and gas development.  The event will occur on Friday April 5th.  We plan to leave Forest Collins around 8am, returning in the late afternoon.  A more detailed agenda will follow.  Please pass this information on to those you think would be interested.    If you would like to attend, please RSVP by April 2nd.
