Nearly 100 people gathered at Boggs Mountain Demonstration State Forest on Saturday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of BMDSF. The event sponsored by Friends of Boggs Mountain was a treat for everyone including live music, a delicious lunch, and raffle. Norm Benson, the Forest Manager from 2000 – 2004 and one of the founders of Friends of Boggs Mountain, spoke on the history of Boggs Mountain and current goals for the Forest. The highlight of the event was the presentation of a $15,000 dollar check from Calpine Corp. to FOBM to be used for reconstruction of hiking trails destroyed by the Valley Fire. Thank you to all who made it happen and to all who participated!
