Volunteers Make a Difference

Since the Friends of the High Lakes inception in 2007, the group has moved over 100 tons of rock, completed trail maintenance, installed needed signing, and developed patrols to educate and inform users to stay on designated (posted) trails, and use light on the land camping techniques.  In addition, the group has eliminated many braided trails, developed brochures, signs, and maps all used to encourage proper use of the area.  

The group was recognized in an informal presentation by the Forest Service, District Ranger Al Vazquez, on September 26, 2009, National Public Lands Day at Spring Valley Lake prior to the group completing fall maintenance in the area.  The group will be recognized more formally in early November by Forest Supervisor Kathleen Morse, of the Lassen National Forest.

Friends of the High Lakes Chairman Knull said he is “extremely proud of the group to have been selected for this honor and 100 percent of the credit goes to each individual and each club that has done an awesome job in making it happen.”
