News Alert: Last Chance to Sign up for Free Naturalist Training Course Starting January 1

Don’t miss your last chance to sign up for a jam-packed, three-day, free naturalist training course with Joel Robinson of Naturalist For You (NFY).

This unique opportunity to become a certified local tour guide will be held from January 1-3, 2010.

Trainees will camp on Frazier Mountain for two days and explore Lockwood Creek on the third. The course begins at Chuchupate Ranger Station at 2 p.m. on Friday, January 1, and you must be available for all three training days.

If you’re interested in participating, contact Joel Robinson at (714) 649-9084 or visit for more information.

Robinson also invites your help to select tour locations and dates for the upcoming NFY winter/ spring calendar. If there are particular canyons and trails that need attention because of lack of visitation, abuse, neglect or developmental threats, please let him know.

This is part of the December 25, 2009 online edition of The Mountain Enterprise.
