2016 was the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the National Park Service! Along with the national Sierra Club and many Chapters and Groups we have actively participated in Events sponsored by the Park Service in our area. The Boots to Boats initiative continued in 20189, as does the ongoing cooperation between our Group and the Park Service. We will have a presence at Trek to Taste, an event on Saturday June 1.
Here is our own Joan Hoffman, Artist in Residence at the Park!
