Donations are needed to pay for the Camp Ben Lomond crew to do fuel reduction, trail work, fence repair, and fire safety projects.  A donation of $220 will cover a crew of 15 men for a day's work.  Want to donate?  Email Val.

If you would like to learn more about the Reserve or volunteer in any way, call Val at 425-1587 or send an email to vegnet@cruzio.com.
