DCIM100MEDIAEPIC invites you to join us for an educational hike in the Headwaters Forest Reserve on Saturday April 18, 2015. This guided educational hike will be led by Rob DiPerna, EPIC’s California Forest and Wildlife Advocate. We will discuss the history of the struggle to protect Headwaters Forest, the mechanisms that created the Headwaters Forest Reserve, and the contemporary challenges to land management in the Elk River watershed. The hike will originate from the Headwaters Forest Reserve South Fork Elk River trailhead, at the end of Elk River road, just south of Eureka, CA at 10 a.m. on Saturday April 18th.  This hike will cover six miles, and will take approximately 2-3 hours to complete. The hike along the South Fork Elk River trail for these six miles will be easy to moderate difficulty. Please come prepared with water, food, and appropriate hiking attire. For more information, please contact EPIC at: 707-822-7711. Hope to see you there!
