Press release from the Institute of Sustainable Forestry:
As part of ISF’s “Circle Around the Sun” series of tours, all are invited to join the Institute for Sustainable Forestry (ISF) for a walking tour in the BLM Wilderness area of Red Mountain. We will be going to Piercy’s Red Mountain to see the 4,000 ft ultramafic peak that is dominated by pines, cedars and cypresses with a 4.5 foot manzanita closed canopy that is home to numerous endemics species.
We will meet at 9 AM, Saturday, June 9 at the Red Mountain BLM Access gate on Highway 271, east of Exit 625 off of US 101.
