It’s been a roller-coaster year in the Wilderness, with fires and floods. Nonetheless our volunteers donated over 14,000 hours – that’s a lot of work. We have some of the most amazing volunteers! Read about them and their accomplishments.
The Radford fire started September 5 and according to Inciweb, is currently burning north of Hwy 38 in the Barton Flats area. Hwy 38 is once again closed and the San Bernardino Sheriffs Department has issued evacuation orders for the area between Glass Road and South Fork River Road.
Due to recent flash flooding Hwy 38 is closed from Angelus Oaks to Jenks Lake Road. We will post when the road is open. Due to the uncertainty of how long the road is closed SGWA has canceled this years Forest Festival.
