Join the Eagle County Historical Society for a snowshoe history trek on East Brush Creek on Friday. Local historian Kathy Heicher will share stories about ranger Bill Brown, who tended the forest form 1920-1935. Learn also about the Civilian Conservation Corps camp established at Yeoman Park in 1940.
The trek will be a moderate, approximate two-mile walk. A shorter trip is an option for those who may not want to walk the entire distance.
Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Sylvan Lake State Park Visitor Information Center parking lot. The group will carpool up East Brush Creek. Pack a lunch for a post-tour picnic at Yeoman Park campground. The outing is free for members of the Eagle County Historical Society. A $5 donation to the Historical Society is suggested for non-members.
Please RSVP to Kathy Heicher by calling 970-328-7104 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
