Public Asked to Avoid Hiking Maud S Canyon Trail July 11

Contact(s): Leona Rodreick, Dave Sabo

The East Ridge Foundation and Forest Service will be partnering with the Mile High Back Country Horsemen to haul water along the Maud S Canyon trail that will be used to control noxious weeds on National Forest and East Ridge Foundation property on Wednesday, July 11 between 8 a.m. and noon.  The public is asked to not use the west side of the trail to provide for safe passage by stock. 

Weed spraying activities will occur through the summer with assistance from Full Armor and AmeriCorps St. Louis volunteers as part of an ongoing program for weed spraying.  The weed spray program was initially funded through the Natural Resource Damage Program which also funded the construction of the west side segment of Maud S Canyon. 

For more information contact the Butte Ranger District at (406) 494-2147 or Bob Miller, East Ridge Foundation, 490-9154.
