Big Beaver Pond Traverse
Saturday, April 25th
10am until noon

Spring is here! Yellow swamp lanterns and magenta salmon berry bloom will light the path as we circumnavigate Big Beaver Pond. Emerging plants, frog and bird song, and flowing water will awaken us to the meaning of the season. Meet at the old city dump gate at 37th and A Ave.

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.



 The ACFL: We've protected it now let's take care of it!
