ALL FOR RECREATION AND RECREATION FOR ALL!
All recreation groups joined together in the Yacolt Burn State Forest as one positive force for the good of our forest, the good of recreation and for the good of WA DNR! And it was GOOD!
We cleaned up the majority of Larch Mountain today. Lots of hard work and lots of hearty souls got it done.
So the next time you visit the Burn, whisper a little Thank You to each of the various recreation groups. They did it for all of us!
