March, 2022 Horsetown-Clear Creek Preserve is hosting hikes and interpretive events this spring!  We hope to see you at one or more event . . . we’ve really missed you!  We would like to give a big shout out to local artist Howard House for installing beautiful and unusual benches and a table on outlying spots along trails at the Preserve.  One area will honor late Board Member Frank Kosko who was on original member of the Board. We expect to take delivery of a new table and eight benches at the amphitheater next week.  Our new toilet should be installed in April.    We had the California Conservation Corp do some fire mitigation work at the Preserve early this year.  They cut and stacked down fuels for small pile burns.  Volunteers also helped the Board with small pile burns and an Adopt-a-Highway cleanup along a two-mile stretch on Clear Creek Road near the Preserve.    Spring is here and we’re seeing more people on the trails and down at the Creek.  Enjoy a hike on your own, with family or friends.  Our Preserve is really a gem and so close to town.  If you enjoy the Preserve or our events, please consider volunteering with us and/or a tax- deductible donation to Horsetown-Clear Creek Preserve to keep the trails clear and organize interesting hikes.  You can donate from our website via PayPal; through Thrivent Choice; or mail a check to our P.O. Box as shown above if you appreciate the work we do. HCCP Board of Directors Cathy Scott, President
