National Public Lands Day, Logan Ranger District Millville Canyon Fencing Project

            Logan, Utah, September 12, 2013 - The Logan Ranger District of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest and Bear River Watershed Council invites the public to attend the 2013 National Public Lands Day, Millville Canyon fencing project.  The purpose of the project is to block an unauthorized stream crossing and repair smaller barriers that have been destroyed in the Big Meadow area.
            ATV and 4x4 groups are encouraged to participate.  The canyon road is rough with jagged rocks and is not suitable for low profile vehicles and, high profile vehicles are recommended. 
           Volunteers are asked to meet at the mouth of Millville Canyon in the large parking lot on Saturday, September 28th at 10:00 am.  Participants should wear protective clothing, long sleeve shirts, long pants, including gloves and bring lots of water.  Some tools will be provided but it is recommended to bring your own shovels and picks.  Lunch will be provided by Camp Chef following the completion of the project at 12:30 pm.
            Please join the Logan Ranger District and the Bear River Watershed Council as we work to protect our National Forest System Lands.  There is a limited need for the number of volunteers and registration is required.  For more information and to register, please contact Lisa Thompson, Volunteer and Partnership Coordinator, Logan Ranger District, (801) 458-1704.    For media inquiries, contact Kathy Jo Pollock at 801-558-8016.
