Who We Are

Friends of Boggs Mountain (FOBM) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed to enhance the visitor’s experience in the forest through educational, interpretive, and recreational programs, help in development of facilities, and assist with maintenance and infrastructure improvements at Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest (BMDSF). The organization cooperates with BMDSF management and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) to meet those objectives.

With BMDSF oversight and approval, we are organizing work crews to help rebuild Boggs trails. Please support our efforts with a donation and/or join as a member to help us revitalize the forest for all visitors! Thank you in advance.

Come join us for an easy to moderate, 2-mile hike, in Boggs Mountain State Forest on Sunday, August 27. We will meet in the Parking Lot adjacent to the Helicopter Station at 8:30 am. We will then carpool to Camp Calso which is the starting point for our hike. We will be hiking both High Chair ad Berry’s Trails where we will be treated to views of the abundant new growth flourishing as a result of the extensive plantings after the 2015 Vqlley Fire devastated much of the Forest. We will also view areas that did not receive replanting to note the comparison. In addition, we can marvel at the views of adjacent mountains and peer down Seigler Canyon to areas adjacent to Clear Lake..The trip will be led by Friends of Boggs Board Members Peg Landini and Darlene Hecomovich.

A message from CALFIRE:“Smokey Bear turned 79 on August 9th, 2023 Did you know that bears have been known to have the best sense of smell than any other animal? They are thought to have 2,100 times better smell than humans, compared to a dog’s sense of smell being 100 times better than a human. Black Bears, like Smokey, have a sense of smell range of 2 miles! They are amazing tree climbers and can run up to speeds to 30 mph! To commemorate Smokeys birthday, please remember to secure your food in bear proof containers and out of sight while recreating in the woods. Bears have amazing memory and the sight coolers, and anything sensed of food, including trash, attract them which can lead issues to their health as well other nuisances. Maintain your distance if you see a bear and always remember, Only You Can Prevent Wildfires.” ... See MoreSee Less
