Wood River Land Trust, Sawtooth Ski Club Seek Volunteers
Tuesday, October 19, 2021


The Wood River Land Trust is seeking volunteers to help plant willows and chokecherry bushes at the Draper Preserve in Hailey.

Planting will be done from noon to 3 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Oct. 21 and 22.

The Land Trust is planting native bushes on eroded and trampled paths at the entrances to the Bow Bridge. That will involve moving large bushes and planting them into premade holes. Those helping are encouraged to bring leather gloves; some are available if you do not have them.

  • Finally, the Land Trust is holding a Volunteer Appreciation Party from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, at Draper Preserver Pavilion.

The party will celebrate Florence Blanchard’s retirement as the president of the Friends of the Howard Preserve.

There’ll be live music, catered food and beverages. The award ceremony will begin at 5 pm.


The Sawtooth Ski Club plans to hold a work day on its Park Creek ski trails at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 30.  Volunteers are asked to bring gloves, chain saws, hand saws and brush loppers as there are about a hundred charred snags on the trails.

The Club will hold a second work day at 10 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 31, at Alturas Lake. These trails are not expected to sport as many downed logs.
