In light of the coronavirus outbreak, President Tom Mackin sent this memo out on March 13 to all members regarding FoNAF's activities for this spring: 

Fellow FoNAF Members:

After speaking/emailing with several of you regarding the current health concerns, effective immediately and until further notice, we're suspending all FoNAF activities, including Aspen Team field work this weekend. None of our pending planned activities represent a dire need and so I feel this is the most appropriate measure we should be taking at this time.

Thank you all for your support and engagement and I look forward to resuming our actions when all conditions improve.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments.

Tom Mackin, President


This section and information on planned events for 2020 is now for reference only following Tom Mackin's memo above:

The annual planning and prioritizing process for 2020 has been completed as of February.  The list of projects requested by the Forest Service and other affiliated organizations is under review and will be finalized by March or early April 2020.  

In the meantime some of the Aspen Team members are working on projects that are more easily accessible even though it's technically still winter.  With the current lack of snow and milder temperatures the team has decided to complete a few projects earlier than planned.

Below is a list of the outings currently planned.  As weather conditions remain mild, more projects will be announced throughout the spring.  Watch this space.  

Contact coordinator Dave Downes for specific information as to 2020 calendar events for the Aspen Team, 928-522-9207.
