Every Kid in a Park 2017

The Forest Service Youth Engagement Program is celebrating National Public Lands Day on September 22nd! To help every 4th grader in the North Fork find their love for public lands, we’re taking them to Lost Lake.


Fourth graders learned that they shouldn’t be fair weather friends to public lands last fall.

The Paonia Ranger District will teach students about timber science and introduce them to the Rocky Mountain Pack String mules. WSCC is leading a naturalist hike and The Nature Connection will make seed bombs and build bluebird homes with the students.

Students sunk their (saw) teeth into timber!

Got an eye for photography? Or a knack for wrangling elementary schoolers? We’re looking for volunteers to come along to Lost Lake! Help us keep the day running smoothly and enjoy a beautiful fall day in the high country.

Let us know if you can come! We’ll meet at the Paonia Ranger District at 7:15am on 9/22 to carpool up to Lost Lake.
