Join Phil Hough, Executive Director of the Friends of Scotchman Peak, for a general overview of the proposed Scotchman Peaks Wilderness Area as well as an update on the Trail Stewardship and the Mountain Goat Ambassador program. Looming above Lake Pend Oreille and the Clark Fork River in the Cabinets, Scotchman Peak is the highest point in Bonner County at 7009'. The Scotchmans are home to a variety of creatures, plants and beautiful trees like Mountain hemlock, whitebark pine and alpine larch; pica, moose, weasels, of course the goats and tons of birds. Join Phil at the Spokane Mountaineers' meeting and learn why it's important to retain this wilderness area. If you haven't had the pleasure of working on a trail, there will be info to see how you can help. Or maybe you'd like to help with the Mountain Goat Ambassador program.
