Volunteers Complete June Training Courses
FCCW volunteers attended Trails Skills Training at Allingham, near Camp Sherman on June 1-3. They took courses in Wilderness First Aid, CPR, GPS, Trail Maintenance, Drainage Design and Dips, and Drainage Crossings. 
Five of our volunteers attended Wilderness Stewardship Training at Mt. Adams Institute in Trout Lake, WA. on June 8-10. Two took two day courses in Wilderness Restoration and Visitor Contacts. FCCW Board members taught two of the classes. Martin Held taught Introduction to Wilderness Stewardship (with FCCW founder Molly Johnson) while Maidie Kenney and Richard Nix taught Trail Sign Skills. FCCW supporter Kate Beardsley taught Stock Awareness.
FCCW volunteers have attended every Wilderness Stewardship Training event in Trout Lake since its inception in 1995.
Trailhead Hosts Wanted
Volunteers are needed at weekends this summer at popular trailheads in the Deschutes and Willamette National Forests.
For Green Lakes and Devils Lake trailheads contact Richard Nix at
For Benson Lake and Obsidian trailheads contact Dylan McCoy at the McKenzie River Ranger Station
For Mt Jefferson Wilderness trailheads along Hwy 22 contact Eric Gjonnes at Detroit Ranger Station at
FCCW volunteers installed a new trail sign on Scott Pass Trail in the Milli Fire Burn Area. It was interesting  to see the randomness of the damage caused by the fire. In some places the humus was burnt completely out of the soil and in others pine needles and grass remained. We were happy to welcome new volunteer Cindy Petri.
Sorry for the short notice!
Please consider volunteering for this special project. Contact Erica Bingham for more information. Tell her FCCW sent you.
Trail Sign Class at Trout Lake
Volunteers gather around the campfire at Trout Lake on Saturday evening for a talk by Suzanne Cable from the Willamette NF
