Trail work Saturday Oct. 26

Our days are getting shorter resulting in FOBM moving trail work back to Saturdays. Join us Saturday October 26 from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for more trail work. We’re in need of extra hands to begin work on Jethro’s Trail. We’ll provide a map to our meetup and project location in your confirmation email once we finalize all the details.Let us know you’re coming by signing up using the following link

Piano Under the Pines

Join us for a morning of music and friends! PIANO UNDER THE PINES,
a performance and conversation with classical pianist Karen Rhoads, will take place Saturday, October 12 from 10:00 to11:00 am at the beautiful Cobb Mountain Elementary School outdoor amphitheater. Karen will play works by Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Bach, and Beethoven. She will also perform her three movement sonata ‘Firestorm’ which she composed in the aftermath of the Valley Fire.

Relax, enjoy the music and commune with nature on a shady forested slope. Friends of Boggs Mountain is sponsoring this admission-free event (donations are appreciated). Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food Company is a proud cosponsor. Children are welcome and the site is wheelchair accessible. Refreshments will be provided.

Cobb Mountain Elementary School is 1/4 mile north of Cobb on Highway 175. GPS: 15895 Hwy 175, Cobb, CA.
To RSVP or for more information, text or phone 707-321-4964 or email Karen at See you there!

Up from the ashes!

Gail’s Trail is open! Yep, you heard that right. Gail’s Trail from BMDSF management office to the campground is now officially open. Since the fire, FOBM has invested thousands of volunteer hours with a focus on getting our trail system back. We recently completed a portion of the old Gail’s Trail and it’s ready for your enjoyment.

Boggs Trail Work!

Grab your gloves, sturdy boots and let’s get digging in Boggs Mountain State Demonstration Forest.  Friends of Boggs Mountain has been working behind the scenes with CAL FIRE since The Valley Fire to implement the restoration of BMDSF trails. We’re thrilled to announce our first community volunteer dig day.  Join us April 20th to help restore our beloved trails.  Due to limited tools and space we’re limiting the volunteer opportunities to 50 people. 

Below is our sign-up link.  In order to ensure we have enough food for our volunteers we need to have each person registered.  If you register and can’t make it, please let us know ASAP so we can get someone else in that spot.  If you have questions, please email us at fobmtn [AT]gmail [DOT]com or private message us on Facebook.

Can’t make it that day?  No worries.  We have more dig days scheduled and will be posting those dates soon. 

All the slots have been filled. Thank you all for your enthusiastic support! If you didn’t make this day, don’t despair, we will announce additional work days again soon.
