Friends of Kings Peak is funding another Wilderness intern for 2015 to work with visitors to the Henry's Fork Kings Peak area.

Mike Casazza, Friends of Kings Peak's wilderness intern spent 13 weeks in the Henry's Fork basin talking to users and picking up trash. In the fall of 2014 FKP worked with the Utah Conservation Corp in upper Painter Basin to redefine Forest Service trail to prevent hikers missing a major intersection and becoming lost. We removed 165 pounds of trash in the fall of 2013 and 276 pounds in 2014, so there is still much work to do in this area.

We are also striving to increase the amount and quality of volunteerism in the area. Thanks to this, we will enable users of these areas to have a much more natural and wild experince. It will also decrease the frequency of search and rescue operations in the Kings Peak area.

For 2015 Friends of Kings Peak has funded a wilderness sign inventory crew. An intern and a forest service volunteer will visit all of the trail intersections on the Evanston Mountain View's wilderness area to replace rotting sign posts and decide which sign need replacing. FKP is trying to finish funding the 2015 Wilderness Intern for Henry's Fork basin as well as a sat phone for the wilderness sign crew.
