We have been contacted by the Mando forest about the possibility of a cleanup August 12-18. We dont have many details yet but once they are out I will update this thread. All the work will be in the Grindstone Ranger District, Stanford area.
FYI, Its not only OLB having trouble getting information out of the forest, The Post Wildfire Recovery group (PWORA) is having the same problem. If I dont receive some information by tomorrow I will pass on the vague info we do have.
I just got back from Day one, here are the details for this weeks post fire work on the Mendo.
Reporting time 0900 hrs.
Reporting location is Fouts work center. 39.35534 -122.65656 (do not go to Stonyford work station)

Bring PPE as described on the Rally Point. Also bring a long sleeve t-shirt just in case you are using power tools.
All tools needed are provided by the forest service.
All trails are graded gravel and dirt.

Base Camp will be set up will be at Summit Valley right next to the work location. This area is just above Letts Lake.
Rally Point to come out very soon, waiting on final approval from the Mendo NF.
