This Sunday, celebrate the reopening of the Coconino National forest with a hike guided by Volunteer Rangers, Rick Ruess and Diana Henry. The hike will begin at 8 a.m. on Sunday, July 15 and will consist of 2.5 miles on the Aspen Loop Trail on The San Francisco Peaks.
The 3-hour, a moderate jaunt, which connects to the Arizona Trail (AZT) begins on Snowbowl road off of the north east corner of the parking lot marked for “Humphreys Trail,” just south of Arizona Snowbowl.
Aspen Loop offers expansive views, meadows of wildflowers and a large variety of trees, each of which have been fortified by recent rains.
Attendees are asked to bring water, snacks, sunscreen, rain gear and to wear sturdy shoes. Binoculars and poles are optional. No dogs, please.
Please be aware that in the case of possible inclement weather, the rangers may choose to cancel the hike.
Super Service Saturdays to offer health, career, WIC services and more
On Saturday, July 14, at the Coconino County Health and Community Services Building, join the community in a pilot project to bring services to residents one Saturday every month through September. Called Super Service Saturdays, the event presents a wide variety of services offered by the Public Health Services District, Community Services Department, the Career Center and other county departments.
This includes resources for job seekers, Financial Empowerment Workshops and WIC services. People can also get a free backpack, while supplies last, when they get back-to-school immunizations or sports physicals during the July and August Service Saturdays.
District 2 Supervisor Liz Archuleta's office will also take part in Super Service Saturdays to help answer constituent questions and inform them on County updates.
More information and a complete list of services can be found at http://www.coconino.az.gov/superservicesaturday or by calling 928-679-7120. Registration is required for some of the services.
