Join our next Hike:

Eastern Heart  - For all ages!
Saturday, May 23rd
10am until noon

There is a labyrinth of trails to the East of Heart Lake and North of Sugarloaf that we will begin to decipher together. Come and get your bearings in this amazing area of our forest. From old growth to alder swale, shale deposits and bedrock, stinging nettle to sticky bedstraw, we will notice the hidden details. Meet at the base of Mount Erie on Ray Auld Drive.

About the Friends

The Friends of the Forest is a non-profit citizens organization dedicated to the preservation of the ACFL through education, outreach, and stewardship. We first formed in 1986 to "preserve, protect, and enjoy" our community forest. Our group was instrumental in the successful effort to halt revenue logging in the ACFL, and essential to the creation and promotion of a system to provide long term legal preservation of the forest.  We welcome all who share in our mission.
