What's Happening?

National Invasive Species Awareness Week is February 22-28, 2015. Non-native plants, animals and pathogens can harm humans and the environment and impact our nation's economy.  Invasive weeds can produce skin irritation, trigger allergies and poison pets and livestock. They can clog waterways, kill native trees, and shade out crops, ornamentals and prized native flora. 5 Steps to Prevent the Spread of Invasive Plants and Animals

     1. Drain, Clean, Dry gear and boats
     2. Burn local or certified firewood
     3. Use weed-free hay
     4. Stay on trails
     5. Before arriving & leaving, remove mud & seeds

Ski Trail Info
Pleasant Grove Ranger District: 
The Little Mill Ski area was groomed Monday, March 2nd. The plan is to groom the trail depending on amount of snow 2-3 times per week, and one time just before weekends, on Fridays.
Salt Lake Ranger District:Winter is back for a few days on the Salt Lake Ranger District. Enough snow was received to groom and set track on the Mill Creek Canyon ski trail March 4th, but there are some thin areas. Temperatures are to warm up the next few days so not sure how parts of the trail will hold up. The trail will continue to be groomed as conditions allow.  Close to 2 feet of new snow was received on March 3rd at the yurt in Mill Creek Canyon located on the Salt Lake Ranger District. Firewood has been restocked, propane changed out, ash can cleaned out and everything looks good at the Yurt.
Heber-Kamas Ranger District: The Beaver Creek ski trail, on the Heber-Kamas Ranger District was groomed Tuesday, January 13th. With the warm weather the snow has been melting and refreezing so conditions are not ideal for skiing. Dogs are allowed on odd days. The trail will be groomed again when it snows.
