Forest watch training offered on Peninsula

FORKS — Free training will be offered Saturday, June 11, for those who want to become forest watch volunteers on state-managed lands in the Forks, Clallam Bay-Sekiu, Port Angeles and Sequim areas.

The state Department of Natural Resources is offering the training from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the National Forest Service Snider Work Center, 551 W. Snider Road, Beaver.

Once trained, volunteers will help monitor and observe roads, trails, sites and facilities; provide assistance and information to visitors; and participate in forest patrols, including documenting and reporting concerns to DNR staff or law enforcement.

Training also includes first aid, safety, and trail maintenance practices.

The training is indoors. Participants should bring pens, notepads and lunch.

The forest watch volunteer training is free, but registration is recommended.
