Join the Eagle County Historical Society for a snowshoe history trek on East Brush Creek. Local historian Kathy Heicher will share stories about Ranger Brown, who tended the forest from 1920-1935. Working primarily by himself, Ranger Brown handled tasks including managing grazing allotments for local ranchers, building key trails and roads, buildin Forest Service cabins, and offices throughout Eagle County, and handling predator control issues involving wolves! Brown also managed the Civilian Conservation Corps camp established in 1940. Come enjoy a half day snowshoe hike while learning about this fascinating character who helped shape many of the trails and forest resources in our valley. 

This hike will be a moderate 2.5 mile snowshoe. Snowshoes & poles are provided. Bring a lunch for a post tour picnic at Yeoman Park Campground. The program meets at Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon at 9am. If you would like to be picked up in Eagle, please reach out to nathanbr@walkingmountains.org.
