Ranger talk schedule summer 2017

Programs from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. in the Greyback Amphitheater (about a mile and a half east of the Barton Flats Visitor Center on Hwy 38). Programs are arranged and introduced by SGWA volunteer rangers, who also present most of the programs. California Land Management,the local campground concessionaire, maintains the amphitheater, provides monetary support for interpretive training, supplies, and equipment, and employees to set up and take down program equipment. In all, a great partnership between SGWA, California Land Management, and the Forest Service for the benefit of the public.

The programs are free along with hot chocolate and coffee (your generous donations are welcome and appreciated), with candy and snacks available for purchase. Bring warm clothing. Programs will be held each scheduled weekend unless it is raining DURING the program time (rain before or after, the show goes on – sprinkles don’t count as rain).

Schedule subject to change.  A downloadable PDF is available at the bottom of the page.
