The U.S. Forest Service hosts National Trails Day, and this year’s theme is “Find your happy place,” encouraging Americans to get outside and celebrate the outdoors. As one of more than 1,500 National Trails Day activities in this, the effort’s 18th year, the San Bernardino National Forest and the Bear Valley Trails Foundation are seeking volunteers to aid in invasive species removal along the Pine Knot Trail. Lunch and tools will be provided for 9am-2pm project; volunteers should bring water, hat, sunscreen and wear appropriate outdoor clothing. Volunteers should meet at the Aspen Glen Picnic Area off Mill Creek Road in Big Bear Lake. For more information, call Stacy Gorin at the Big Bear Discovery Center at 909/382-2794.
National Trails Day is also a fee-free day on the forest, so no Adventure Pass required on June 5 or 6!
