Sunday, April 23, 2017 Fern Family Hike with Short Creek Guide. 8 am Family and Group Hike with Andrew Chatwin **Heather Cooke, Terrill Musser’s wife is going to be offering childcare.  $3 an hour per kid so you can bring your little ones on this trip if you are interested in local childcare. If you will need childcare for children 11 and under, please email the names and ages of your children to info@thefernfoundation.org with the subject line, “Childcare.” We will also let children 12 and older help on the landscaping portion if they are responsible and you are committed to making sure they stay in designated areas.

All volunteers can commit to different projects or join us for the entire schedule. This year we have the amazing, unique, and fun experience of “camping out” in Warren Jeffs’ actual home (this will mean bringing your own bedding). This is optional and you are welcome to arrange your own lodging. Note: No children under 11 can stay at the Jeffs’ home unless they rent a private room.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

ALL volunteers must fill out the form below. Once the form is received, you will receive email updates with scheduling and lodging info.
