Our Next Generation of Stewards

We believe it is important to take time & teach our youth the importance of forest road stewardship.  It is even more important to live by example.  We are proud to have worked with the youth from the Sauk River Christian Camp!  They put in 186 volunteer hours doing a great cleanup for the Mountain Loop Highway and it looked great!  The Darrington 9th grade class adopted the USFS Sauk River Boat Launch!  They have had work-parties keeping it clean, trimming the grass, sweeping the picnic gazebo & cleaning barbecues.  The most valuable part of their volunteer service is they know they are having a positive impact on a very special place & a sense of ownership & community pride for public lands!

Work in Partnerships
Working together we can do so much more!  FFPU has a volunteer contract with the Darrington Ranger District & works to be their eyes for the forest roads, keep them clean, safe & open.   We worked with our WCC friends on several projects, both groups sharing a passion of keeping access to the backcountry.  Together we repaired the concrete ford on Clear Creek Road, FSR #2060, & brushed out several forest roads.  Once a year FFPU turns it's attentions to helping with trails on National Trail Day & encourages diverse recreation users groups to come out & give back to the trails they love whether it be hiking trails, bicycle trails or fitness trails.  We believe all recreation users share a common bond of the love of the outdoors.  After the workday we all enjoy a meal organized by FFPU & Darrington community at the Darrington Rodeo Grounds generously provided by DHOA.

Supporting Great Causes
With FFPU, preserving public access is a passion!  We have helped several organizations by letters of support and promoting fundraisers.  We are currently working very hard to reopen the Circle Creek Forest Road and gain access to the Crystal Lake & Circle Peak Trails with DARA & River Resource Trust.  Please help us save this road!
