ACE crew helps out at BLM Surprise Field Office
The American Conservation Experience crew recently visited the Surprise Field Office for an 8 day hitch. The crew came arrived in Cedarville only to be greeted by a snow storm and freezing temperatures. The crew worked in Nevada and California public lands managed by BLM California Surprise Field office.
Much of the work involved decommissioning 2-track roads, fence work and removal, campground maintenance and construction of a buck and rail fence around a spring. The highlight was converting two miles of 2-track roads to 1-track hiking trails. One of the new trails leads to the boundary of the South Warner wilderness and the other leads to a high-elevation vista point over the Surprise Valley. These are the office’s first established trails.
The Surprise Field office was really appreciative that the crew worked on these projects even during blizzard conditions.
