STEP INTO WINTER
Water Harvesting
A big Thank You to Lowell Observatory for donating a 30,000-gallon water tank that will be used for rainwater harvesting at Fort Tuthill County Park, and to BEC Southwest, Inc. for assisting with the removal and relocation. We're excited for the salvaged water tank to be used this summer! You can read more about the project at the Coconino County website.
Pack In, Pack Out
Are you coming to Northern Arizona for snow play this winter? We hope you enjoy your time outside. Remember to pick up your trash instead of leaving litter in the forest. Your actions make a difference and will go a long way to helping keep broken sleds out of the forest.
